Parliamentarians want to unlock R $ 1.8 billion in amendments

Resources, which would be destined to works at the electoral bases, make up a slice controlled by the benches and were vetoed by Bolsonaro

In yet another obstacle to the government’s political coordination, facing the turmoil of Covid’s CPI, deputies and senators articulate the recomposition of R $ 1.8 billion of the so-called bench amendments vetoed by President Jair Bolsonaro when sanctioning the Budget of 2021.

Parliamentarians want to unlock the resources to allocate them to works on their electoral bases, with an eye on the 2022 election. The movement had already taken place before the revelations about the “parallel budget” – related to another modality of amendment, that of rapporteur, whose transfer privileged congressmen aligned with the Planalto Palace.

The bench amendments do not only include allies of the government, which makes the overturning of the veto an agenda with broad adherence in Congress. The analysis of vetoes starts to jam the agenda as of next week.
