President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) sanctioned this Wednesday (18) the text of the Provisional Measure (MP) that provides for a permanent minimum amount of R$ 400 for Auxílio Brasil, which will increase the annual disbursement of the federal government with the social program for around BRL 90 billion.
The information was confirmed by the Secretary of Communication of the Presidency, which did not say whether there were any vetoes by the president of the initiative.
The text had been approved by Congress two weeks ago.
Initially, the federal government had proposed that the minimum amount of R$ 400 for the benefit would be valid only until the end of this year. Parliamentarians, however, decided to make the value permanent.
Auxílio Brasil, created under the Bolsonaro government, which will seek re-election in the October elections of this year, replaced Bolsa Família as the main social and income transfer program of the federal administration.
