Tight security for the traditional Budget lockup hardly seemed necessary, with key spending programs already leaked. But there was one big surprise - worth $3.6 billion over four years. a big tax cut for business The main feature - payroll tax will be cut from 6% to 5.5%. The threshold to pay the tax will rise with inflation as well. Any tax cuts must be implemented without jeopardising funding for essential services.

That's why the cuts to payroll tax will be phased. it's a true Labor Budget The Premier says

that delivers more front-line workers, including: This is all about building tomorrow's NSW today - the infrastructure so essential for keeping the economy strong.

Massive borrowings will fund the $14 billion infrastructure spending this year - a record $5.9 billion on public transport, with a large chunk of that on the North West Metro, and a record $4 billion on roads, but no M4 East extension. no relief

to Labor's so-called working families in western Sydney or elsewhere across NSW, given the increasing cost of living. The Treasurer found an extra 5% to increase the health budget to $13.2 billion,

A little more too for education, taking it to $11 billion. Unions are unhappy at the pay offer and other public sector workers. to nurses Morris Iemma is treating these workers with absolute contempt, only providing for a 2.5% wage increase. This is a Budget that delivers the trifecta for NSW - $2.2 billion in business tax cuts, a record infrastructure spend, increased funding for services. That's a good result all around.

And economists say those on a mortgage should be spared increases for at least a few more months. The pause in interest rates good news for the Prime Minister, after the row over rising petrol prices has knocked much of the shine off him. Today's RBA decision is welcome news for many Australians but we must treat the RBA's decision with caution. the Governor says: In deciding to hold rates at 7.25%, Consumers are spending less and building approvals are largely flat but demand for our energy resources is pumping billions into the economy. That leads the Governor to also say:

I think the Reserve Bank now is on the sidelines for quite a number of months The economy has clearly slowed under the weight of previous interest rate hikes. To keep the Bank on the sidelines, the Government says now is not the time for the Opposition to begin hacking into the Budget surplus. The Coalition has decided to oppose, amend or delay nine of the Government's Budget revenue-raising bills. the Opposition is incrementally destroying its economic credibility. any sense of urgency about them. Its consequences will be to put upward pressure on inflation on interest rates. and upward pressure Labor hoping this is safer ground than highlighting petrol tax relief.

A new multivitamin is giving older men a better chance of becoming fathers. Trials show it helps the male fertility clock and cuts the risk of miscarriage. Little Zara Tremellen's father, David, is a fertility expert offering a new helping hand to dads struggling to start their own family. We know as men get older in the sperm goes up then the DNA damage

and that can have quite serious consequences. Like significantly raising the risk of miscarriage and, by the age of 50, reduce a man's fertility by up to 80%. That's not widely understood, that men have a biological clock as well. I think when people think of miscarriage they think it's entirely a female issue.

Menevit gives men multivitamins and anti-inflammatories.

Things that not only help repair that DNA damage in sperm as they repair but also protects them against further damage. Doctors now know an expectant father's lifestyle choices are just as important as his partner's. Men are encouraged to reduce their alcohol intake and stop smoking. Guys do understand what it's all about these days

and they do a lot of reading and they're very well informed. I told my husband that. He didn't give up his beer, though. It seems the message is getting through. A Newspoll survey has found half of all men are willing to give up beer to help their partner get pregnant. Um, I think they probably were drunk. The fertility pill will be available nationally next week. Ali Donaldson, Ten News. The battle for the Democratic presidential nomination

with the final two primaries to be held tomorrow. Barack Obama is widely expected to be the nominee, but New York senator Hillary Clinton is fighting it out until the end. Joining us from New York, Ten's US correspondent, Nicole Strahan.

The final two primaries are being held in South Dakota and Montana, will return here to New York but tomorrow night Hillary Clinton to attend a rally with supporters in what is expected to be the end to her campaign to become the first female president of the United States. But she's giving little away about exactly when she will bow out of the race. So the decision will fall to the delegates empowered to vote at the Democratic convention, and I will be spending the coming days making my case to those delegates.

But perhaps a better indication of what will happen This may be the last night I'm ever involved in a campaign of this kind. I thought I was out of politics until Hillary decided to run. As for Barack Obama, he's been very careful not to claim victory just yet. Senator Clinton has run an outstanding race. She is an outstanding public servant and she and I will be working together in November. Such comments have again prompted speculation of a dream ticket - Barack Obama as the presidential nominee and Hillary Clinton as his vice-presidential running mate. arrested during a crack cocaine bust.

This program is captioned live. Top stories this news hour - Crime Commission assistant director Mark Standen is behind bars tonight, accused of helping a global drug ring import ice.

Colleagues have today revealed the former top cop had a million-dollar gambling debt. Horrified parents have described

how they arrived at a Sydney childcare centre to find their baby locked inside. Operators of the centre admit staff forgot the child when they left for the day. Police had to break in to rescue the one-year-old girl, whose parents won't be using the centre again. And small business rejoices while unions are seething

over Michael Costa's $47 billion Budget spending spree for NSW. Payroll tax will be cut, saving business $3.6 billion over four years. But unions are unhappy with a 2.5% wage increase for nurses and other public service workers. Also seething about the State Budget,

Speeding fines have become a cash bonanza, raising $56 million more than expected. It was only a passing reference in the Budget papers but the revenue from traffic fines was enough to get any motorist hot under the collar. The total take from fines this year is $300 million - up a whopping $56 million on last year's Budget estimates. They expected to collect just $244 million. We've always suspected that the Government is more interested in revenue-raising than road safety. I think the figures in this Budget prove that. The Government took an extra $36 million in revenue through the State Debt Recovery Office - mostly from unpaid fines. And there was an extra $20 million collected by speed cameras. I'd be much happier if people weren't speeding on our roads and being caught, because speeding is the number one cause of deaths and injuries on our roads. And motorists had better be wary because the Treasurer expects to continue the crackdown and collect fines at an increasing rate over the next four years. The NRMA says fining motorists doesn't work. What these figures show quite clearly is putting up speed cameras and hoping motorists slow down is not working. What we need is more police on the roads, more highway patrols.

That will get more motorists slowing down. I ask drivers to slow down, take it easy on our roads. All of our speed cameras are heavily signposted to get drivers to slow down. But with more than 200,000 individual fines issued to motorists each year, many drivers simply ignore the warnings and end up paying a high price. John Hill, Ten News. Childcare centres have been warned not to use increased subsidies for parents as an excuse to jack up fees.

From July, parents will receive a 50% childcare tax rebate. But there are fears some centres may use the bonanza to up their fees. We won't be watching all the dough go out the door and not into people's pockets

but into the profits of childcare companies. We'll take what action we can

But good news for the Roosters, with Anthony Minichiello to make his comeback against Manly. Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens has called for greater consistency from video match officials after this no-try ruling to the Sydney Roosters. in last night's 19-10 loss If you can't tell within two looks, then you're not sure. If you're not sure, what does that tell you?

Mitchell Aubusson scored a double for the Roosters - the victory moving them to equal top in the NRL standings. Wendell Sailor will end a 7-year absence from the NRL on Friday night, debuting for St George Illawarra against the Broncos. Big Dell will be on the wing and is expecting to be targeted by his former coach.

He's getting ready for his first big game after several weeks in the park, but Wendell Sailor's expecting no favours from Wayne Bennett. I wouldn't be surprised if they try and target me a little bit out on the right fringe. It's a different step up from Jim Beam Cup. You'd be silly not to try and come down my side a little bit. But I'm looking forward to it - it's something different and I'm going to be confident enough to back my ability. One Dragon was caught out by Sailor's call-up. He did, did he?

I think it's great. I think it will be good. he'll be straight back to his best. Former team-mates reckon Yeah, I think so. He's certainly telling everyone. The 33-year-old showed he's still got fire in the belly last weekend, up against a Windsor player for knocking out rival wingers. with a reputation 'Cause I knew who he was and a couple of times he came in and he just kept bouncing off me, and I was just laughing at him saying,

"You're not going to be knocking me out." Sailor tormented Dragons fans plenty of times in the past, for love from Wollongong folk, but on Friday night he'll be looking especially after one of his last visits as a Bronco. I was in this corner, I think, and I think some fans were jeering me and I was just looking at them and pumping them up a bit and, yeah, they threw something. So hopefully they can back me this time.

Adam Hawse, Ten News. Sea Eagles CEO Grant Mayer has slammed a junior rugby league club for promoting violence. Manly Cove Club registrar and committee member Doug Armstrong was forced to resign after he emailed the clip to 30 members of the junior club. The 1981 semifinal brawl between Manly and Newtown features some of league's biggest names - Max Krilich, Tommy Raudonikis, Les Boyd, Mark Broadhurst and Steve Bowden.

As expected, the Waratahs have announced club rugby coaching guru Chris Hickey as their new leader

for the next three seasons. And in a bizarre twist, Hickey will seek the advice of the man axed by the Tahs, outgoing coach Ewen McKenzie. The new man in charge and with no uncertainty about what he's there to do. Obviously the aim is to win that Super 14 title.

Despite the recent treatment of this season's coach, Ewen McKenzie, Hickey says he wasn't apprehensive in signing on and he doesn't view the job as a poisoned chalice. Coaching is a funny game and it is a difficult game. Unfortunately when you get involved I think at some stage or another you're going to move on from a team.

Hickey has a long history as a first-grade coach and has been to 11 club grand finals. and has coached the Australia under-21s He's also a former assistant to Rod Macqueen at the Brumbies and has coached the Australia under-21s and NSW 'A' sides. The Wallabies are still getting to know their new coach, New Zealander Robbie Deans. He doesn't talk real much. I've walked past him and he's just raised the eyebrows and everything else.

The current ratings leader defeated countryman C.J. Hobgood in a replay of the 2005 final, making it an incredible three event wins from four this year. In a further boost to his title campaign,

the one event he didn't win was taken out by a wild card. Yeah, only guy on tour to win an event - that's pretty odd, it's very odd. I don't think there's ever been that situation on tour.

Tahiti's Manoa Drollet is the only surfer to defeat Slater this year. Later in Sports Tonight, the late mail from the Origin camps, and the Swans prepare to take on the Eagles

for the first time since Barry Hall knocked out Brent Staker. Stay with us - Tim Bailey has more on this grey wintry weather next.

If you're caught speeding or not wearing your seatbelt this June long weekend, you'll lose at least half your licence. And if just one of your passengers isn't wearing theirs,

that's your licence gone. Remember - double demerits for seatbelt and speeding offences.

APIA presents 'The Getting of Wisdom' with Max Walker.

I was driving home from cricket practice and I came up behind this Torana. I don't really know how it happened but I just run into the back of him. (CRASH!) And then, whoof! These days I'd just walk the two blocks home. Driving less? on your comprehensive car insurance premium. SONG: # Wise move, APIA. #
