Finance Minister Henrique Meirelles in an interview to GloboNews on Monday (20) said that the fiscal recovery project proposed to the States are nothing more, nothing less than what is necessary for them be able to pay their bills. This was a response to growing criticism from governors that conditions demanded by the Federal Government in exchange for financial assistance are excessive and will bring great sacrifices to the population, as well as privileging those states that have not acted with fiscal responsibility, and punishing those who have made their homework.
Meirelles said also that the situation of Rio de Janeiro is dramatic, very serious, what shows that states must accept counterparts in order to  be able to adjust their fiscal situation definitively.
