The rapporteur of PEC of Precatório, deputy Hugo Motta (Republicans-PB), should present this Monday, 27th, the work plan of the special commission that will discuss the matter at the Chamber.

The 34 members of the commission, chaired by Deputy Diego Andrade (PSD-MG), should reach a consensual text on how to resolve the impasse of the government’s judicial debts. The values ​​will reach 89.1 billion reais in 2022. The PEC, sent by the Executive, suggests the installment of part of these debts, but the solution negotiated between Lira and the president of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (DEM-MG), it’s different.

Lira and Pacheco met with the Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, last week and, on leaving, informed that they intend to forward a solution that does not include debt installments. The idea is to pay 39.8 billion reais in 2022 — the equivalent of what was paid in 2016, when the spending ceiling was created, with the necessary updates.

The objective is to keep the court orders within the spending ceiling and free up budget space for the Brazil Aid, which will replace Bolsa Família. The problem is that the payment of almost 50 billion reais would be missing. According to Pacheco, the new text, which still needs to pass through the scrutiny of deputies and senators, would include a forecast for payment of these amounts. But if it is not possible to pay them in 2022, they will stay for 2023.

The special commission must hear various points of view on the precatoria, such as that of Guedes, that of the president of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), Luiz Fux, and the minister of the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU) Bruno Dantas. O The rapporteur also wants the presence of representatives of the state finance secretaries and the National Confederation of Municipalities.
