States fear Fed Govt is trying to seize control of NDIS: Martin Foley on RN Breakfast

Crunch time is fast approaching for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, which is due to dramatically expand from July this year.

Business leaders are warning of a multi billion dollar blow out in the NDIS, and are calling on the Turnbull Government to redesign the scheme to control the number of people who qualify for help and to restrict the support services available.

At the same time, some of the states fear the Commonwealth is trying to seize control of the program ahead of the May budget.

Martin Foley, the Victorian Minister for Disability, joins RN Breakfast‘s Political Editor Alison Carabine.
