I’m also proud to be part of the Turnbull Coalition Government that has delivered a number of historic reforms in the last year: Gonski 2.0; Snowy Hydro 2.0; cracking down on multinational tax avoidance; tax cuts and other incentives for small business; and much more. I encourage you to read the PM’s short piece on what we’ve achieved for Australians.

I can’t wait for the year ahead and to deliver more for the people of Bonner.
