Govt’s second quarterly plan builds freedom and prosperity

Working for a civil contractor before I entered Parliament I’ve had the privilege of witnessing first-hand the hard work and dedication of New Zealanders striving for a better future rain, hail or shine. It’s only fitting that they have a government that mirrors their commitment—a government that is fiscally responsible, makes it easier to get stuff done, and delivers services without bias or discrimination.

Under the Coalition Government we’ve made significant strides toward these goals, and our achievements to date reflect our unwavering commitment to the people of this nation. As we are well into our second quarterly plan, I am pleased to outline some of the ACT policy initiatives we are advancing in this phase of government.

Our coalition government’s quarterly plan is a testament to our dedication to action and progress. With half of the 36 actions in the plan stemming from ACT policies, we are at the forefront of driving positive change for our communities. From making Labour’s MDRS housing rules optional for councils, to reviewing the methane science for consistency, our policies are designed to empower local governments, promote cost-effective environmentalism, and support economic growth.

Key initiatives such as improving the rental market, streamlining the Medsafe approval process, and delivering a Budget that reduces wasteful spending while investing in frontline services demonstrate our commitment to addressing the pressing issues facing our society. By reforming the Holidays Act, reintroducing charter schools, and launching initiatives to lift school attendance, we are prioritizing education and ensuring equal opportunities for all.

Moreover, our focus on law and order is unwavering. We are restoring Three Strikes, reviewing the firearms registry, and repealing Section 7AA of the Oranga Tamariki Act to ensure consequences for crime while safeguarding rights and ensuring every child has opportunity, regardless of race.

At the core of our agenda are the priorities outlined by ACT during the election—reining in the cost of living, ensuring consequences for crime, and promoting equal rights for all. These principles guide our actions and shape our policies, ensuring that decision-making power and resources are returned to the households and businesses that sustain our economy.

As an ACT MP based in West Auckland, I am proud to be part of a government that is not only responsive to the needs of its citizens but also proactive in driving real change. Together, we will continue to build a stronger, more prosperous New Zealand for generations to come.
