According to Marcos Pereira, new rules for consortium and bidding are already scheduled for plenary
The President-in-Office of the Chamber of Deputies, Marcos Pereira, assured on Wednesday morning that the House defends the proposal presented yesterday by the Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, to transfer 70% of the royalties of the for municipalities.
“It is not permissible for the Union to keep most of the resources collected from the citizens and for this to be lost in the great and tedious bureaucracy of Brasilia. It is not possible that the mayors, as we say, come here and remain saucer in hand. We have to end this and give autonomy, “he said.
Pereira announced that “two important projects, such as the new rules for consortium and tenders, are already scheduled for plenary.” I will preside over the sessions today and I want to demonstrate that this theme was discussed yesterday at the leaders’ meeting.
We are going to do this with the help of all the MEPs so that this can be resolved later this week. It is our commitment so that the ‘Federative Pact’ is urgently discussed and approved by the National Congress, “commented Pereira. He also defended that it is in the municipalities that the first demands of the population arise.
Because of the acronym it represents, Marcos Pereira stated that he feels a municipality in spirit. “In the campaign, out of the ten topics of compromise, one of them was the one that was care and look at municipalities, especially for the small and medium, “he added.
Deputy Gaucho Afonso Motta (PDT) said that the municipal achievements have been limited and considered that “the great challenge will be, at the time of the promised tax reform, to effectively create the conditions for resources to reach the cities.” In that sense, he explained that bench edgings have been a very special feature.
“We are developing partnerships with our states and governors to make these amendments effective, but we must, like any other relationship, lobby the sources of government that have the capacity to release resources so that they can arrive as quickly as possible,” he added.
