Where is the NDIS rolling out next?

In 2016 the NDIS will begin rolling out across the country. At the moment we know that the governments across Australia are talking to each other to work out exactly how this will happen. Each of the state and territory governments has to make a written agreement with the Australian government about what they will do.
