Strengthen Provincial Autonomy
New Zealand’s central bureaucracy in Wellington is out of control.
Successive governments have implemented more and more laws that require more and more public service officials to administer, requiring more and more of our taxpayers’ money. And even then, ministries and departments are failing to meet their obligations. To remedy their failures, they employ more people and demand more money from the taxpayer coffers. This cycle is a debilitating factor in our country’s growth and wealth creation.
Unnecessary government over-reach will be eliminated through reducing the power of central government.
New Nation will slash Wellington’s political power through growing the autonomy of our regions. Our provinces will be stronger, and have a greater say over the way they manage their infrastructure and services.
