Action questions device that allows resources to be sent directly to states and municipalities
O Budget 2021 ended up in Supreme Federal Court (STF). The Novo party filed a lawsuit to suspend part of the amendments to state benches. The Direct Action of Unconstitutionality questions a device that allows funds for amendments to be sent directly to states and municipalities. The National Congress took part of the government’s mandatory expenses, determined in the Constitution, and transferred parliamentary amendments. Insper professor André Marques emphasizes the possibility of tax pedaling.
“For you to have this done, you need to commit a tax liability crime, because it would exceed the spending ceiling. It is in a situation where either Congress returns to the discussion of the budget or the way it is is unenforceable ”, he stressed. O New maintains that it is a “carte blanche to the governors and mayors in the application of the funds”. In view of the unsustainable scenario, the Ministry of Economy seeks an agreement with Congress and there is already a consensus on the mandatory alteration in the Budget, with the revision of expenses and reduction of parliamentary amendments.
