Appropriation Bills

Section 27 of the Financial Accountability Act 2009 provides that, for each financial year, the Treasurer must present two Bills to the Legislative Assembly: one for the Legislative Assembly, known as the Appropriation (Parliament) Bill; and one for all other agencies, known as the Appropriation Bill.


The Bills provide for:

  • 2017-18 appropriation to fund the cost of delivering departmental services, administered items and equity adjustments in that year
  • supply for 2018-19 to allow the normal operations of government to continue until the Appropriation Bill for 2018-19 receives assent.

The Appropriation Bills are available on the Queensland Legislation website.

Regional Action Plans

Regional Actions Plans outline key Budget initiatives and projects announced by the Government for each region.


Note: In a limited number of cases, the expenditure for individual projects and initiatives, including estimated total infrastructure and capital works spending by region in 2017-18, in the Regional Action Plans (RAPs) may not precisely match that presented in other Budget Papers. This reflects different rounding approaches to specific project and initiative expenditures in development of the RAPs. In these instances, the more detailed expenditure presented in Budget Papers 3 and 4 should take precedence and be referenced.
