When it comes to distributing the GST, there is only ONE fair and equitable way. Each state gets 75% of what they contribute. The other 25% gets distributed to those states in "need". This allows successful states to benefit and not be hindered as in the case of WA where at one stage only 31c out of every GST dollar went back to WA.
