Election season is looming. Voters in Victoria go to the polls within weeks; in NSW within months. State policy has rarely been more important. But what should the policy priorities be, not only for the governments in Australia’s two biggest states, but state governments across the nation? The upcoming elections are an opportunity to take stock of how Australia’s states are doing, where they are going, and what state governments can do about it.

Following the release of our State Orange Book 2018, this Policy Pitch event, featuring a number of Grattan Institute fellows and Program Directors, will examine some of the policy recommendations from ten years of Grattan Institute reports and outline what state and territory governments should do to improve Australia.
