Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is pitching big to small businesses, while Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington has grand plans to stimulate the recycling industry.
Pre-poll voting in the state election started on Monday, with the latest Newspoll showing Labor's economic plan is the most popular.
The poll, taken last week, showed 43 per cent of respondents backed Labor's plan, while 23 per cent were in favour of the LNP program.
Ms Palaszczuk pledged $140 million in support to small businesses on the Gold Coast, where all but one seat is held by the LNP.
"It's a great investment in our people, and fundamentally it is about jobs, jobs and more jobs," she said.
"I am absolutely committed to supporting small businesses across our state.
"We've already had a lot of investment during COVID and we are building that investment to make sure we give people every opportunity to reach their dreams, succeed and employ more Queenslanders."
Ms Palaszczuk also unveiled a $160 million plan for a new hospital and health precinct at Coomera, in another pitch to voters in LNP heartland.
While the premier was promising to help prop up and propagate existing businesses, Ms Frecklington announced plans to stimulate a growing industry in a safe Labor seat.
She pledged $60 million to stimulate the recycling sector to turn Queensland into the "Recycling State".
The money will fund a trial of building roads out of recycled materials and a solar panel reverse-auction.
"We want to see them recycled. We want to see them in the road, because we know that it is just so important that we get this product out of landfills," Ms Frecklington said in Lytton.
Ms Frecklington promised to fast-track approvals for recycling projects and to ban batteries and e-waste from landfill by 2024.
Meanwhile, businessman Clive Palmer has amended controversial election ads that claimed Labor was planning to reintroduce the death tax.
He changed the wording from "will" to "could", which Deputy Premier Steven Miles says is mischievous.
"The word 'could' is pretty tricky," Dr Miles said.
"I mean, I could say that Deb Frecklington is a Russian sleeper agent. But she's not and I won't say that."
He also called for the LNP leader to distance herself from Mr Palmer and call out his ads, but she denied any link to him.
Ms Frecklington was unprepared to say whether she will back the conscience vote on euthanasia, which was promised by Ms Palaszczuk on Sunday.
The premier said she would personally vote for euthanasia.
"It is very important that people have dignity in death," Ms Palaszczuk said.
When asked if she supports "the premise of euthanasia", Ms Frecklington said: "I believe that no one should have to die alone or in pain."
Queenslanders go to the polls on October 31.
