35 Budget Initiatives This chapter summarises the Governments new and expanded initiatives for expenditure and revenue included in the 2008-09 Budget, along with the significant new works on the 2008-09 Capital Works Program. This listing also includes items that were announced in the 2007-08 Budget but will not commence until 2008-09. The Capital Works Program tables list major works projects and capital grants. The amounts reflect the total project costs, not the cash allocation in the 2008-09 Budget. For more details about initiatives and capital projects, including capital works projects continuing from 2007-08, see Budget Paper No. 3 and Budget Paper No. 4. Budget Paper No. 3 also provides information on Commonwealth-funded projects not included in this chapter. A detailed discussion of revenue initiatives, including revenue policy changes, is also presented in the last section of this chapter. Tables 4.1 and 4.3 provide summaries of initiatives across all agencies. Tables 4.2 and 4.4 provide the initiative details.
