The aim of the President of the House, Arthur Lira, is to vote until Wednesday; to pass, she needs at least 308 votes in two rounds
The Chamber may begin, on Monday, 8, the debates around the Emergency PEC, which opens the way for the return of emergency aid. The aim of the President of the House, Arthur Lira, is to vote until this Wednesday, 10. To be approved, she needs at least 308 votes in two rounds. The text allows the government to allocate up to R $ 44 billion for the new phase of the aid. The expense would come in the form of supplementary credits, that is, it would be outside the spending ceiling. Part of the deputies is also in favor of removing the ceiling Family Allowance, but the idea should not succeed.
The rapporteur, Deputy Daniel Freitas (PSL), intends to keep the current version of the text so that it goes straight to the promulgation, without returning to the Senate. The Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, also wants quick approval. “The important thing now is precisely the approval by Congress of the attack on the twin crises. Health and economy so close there, they walk with both legs. If one fails, we fall. The most important thing is approval by Congress. ” By agreement between most leaders, the matter goes straight to the plenary, without going through the commissions. Although in favor of PEC, the leader of Novo, deputy Vinícius Poit, criticizes the government and Congress’ haste to vote.
For him, the text deserves a broader discussion to extend spending cuts. “A text that should be analyzed in spite of the emergency aid, which we are in need of now, but a PEC that came long before the aid. A PEC that brought fiscal responsibility to the State. Everyone has to cut spending. When we are going to contain some contests, automatic progressions and promotions, the MP and the magistrate should also be included. ” As a counterpart to the new emergency aid, PEC defines triggers to be triggered to contain expenses when government expenditures reach 95 percent of total expenditures. Among them, the veto on readjustments of civil servants and the holding of new contests and programs such as Refis, in addition to the reduction of tax incentives.
