Parliament begins review of US$ 3.6 billion supplementary budget bill

The National Assembly is making progress after
a standstill that lasted over a month… caused by partisan disputes over an online opinion-rigging
scandal, and a set of contested bills. Lawmakers are finally going over the proposed
extra funds. Some 3-point-6 billion U.S. dollars to help
create quality jobs and boost depressing employment figures. The parliamentary special committee on budget
and accounts officially began its review this morning. Tomorrow they plan to refer the bill to a
subcommittee to fine-tune the details… so that it can finally be put to a full floor
vote on Friday. Five other standing committees have also started
reviewing the proposal.
