SORRY BUSINESS

Health funding and a compensation for survivors of institutional child sexual abuse are set to dominate today's COAG meeting of federal, state and territory governments.

The Turnbull government goes into the meeting offering what it says is a $30 billion boost to health funding over five years, calling on the states to take on 55% of the funding burden. But state governments are unhappy with the offer, according to The Australian Financial Review, and want to see the levels of funding promised under the Gillard government restored.
