Question Without Notice to the Premier, June 21, 2022
Amy MacMahon: My question is to the Premier. Publicly owned electricity companies have been forced to chase profits, driving up power bills to pay dividends to the state government at costs far beyond the paltry $175 we will be getting back. Will the government scrap those dividends and cut power bills permanently?
Annastacia Palaszczuk: I thank the member for the question. I can advise the House that in the budget today the dividends will be reinvested back in with the generators—the GOCs.
