Budget April 2019 - Migration News
The current government (NB: be aware there is an election between now and November 2019) has announced in the Budget that as of November 2019 they will introduce:

 

1) the Skilled Migration Points Test will be adjusted to award additional points to primary applicants when their partner has competent English but does not meet the existing requirements for skilled partner points. Single applicants will also be awarded additional points to ensure they are not disadvantaged.
These changes will prioritise applicants who are single or whose partner can demonstrate competent English and therefore have the best potential to participate in
the Australian labour market.

 

also I have posted elsewhere on these

2) The Government will reduce the planning level of the Migration Program from 190,000 to 160,000 places for four years from 2019-20. https://www.taylormadeimmigration.com/2019-20 Migration Plan
3) The Government is increasing the base visa application charge (VAC) for all visa subclasses, with the exception of the Visitor (subclass 600) visa, by 5.4 per cent from 1 July 2019. There will be no increase to second instalment VACs.

It will be interesting to see how they balance the points out, and if this just increases the minimum (functional) requirements
