The 2015 Budget has no vision for the future of South Australia, say SA's Australian Greens Senators.
Senator Penny Wright said the Government was continuing to protect big business at the expense of everyday South Australians.
"The Abbott Government has absolutely no vision for South Australia's future. Rather than finding new sources of revenue from the big end of town, this Budget cuts one vital service to fund another," Senator Wright said.
The Australian Greens have called for an increased commitment to renewable energy from all levels of government in light of Alinta Energy's determination that a solar thermal plant in Port Augusta remains unfeasible at this stage.
Australian Greens Senator for South Australia Senator Penny Wright said South Australians overwhelmingly wanted renewable energy to replace dirty coal power.
"The future is renewable - there is no doubt about that," Senator Wright said. "It's time for all governments to step up and take the leader to make solar thermal happen at Port Augusta."
