Labor to block rate capping
This legislation, in its present form, is now doomed to failure as both the Greens and Labor have said that the legislation is flawed and that they will not support it. I have said many times in this blog that it is the bill that is flawed and not the concept. Sensible rate increase limitations are a must to reign in rates. But don't be fooled by Adelide City Council's claim to having capped their rates at zero for years. They have capped the rate in the dollar and not individual rates. It Unley had capped the rate in the dollar your rates would have sky rocketted. Sensibly we reduce the rate in the dollar to get only the rate rise we budgetted for.
