The Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, was, this Friday (9), at the official residence of the presidency of the Federal Senate. The minister went to discuss with the president of the National Congress, Rodrigo Pacheco, the possibilities of opening the Federal Budget to fund the nursing floor.
The meeting takes place after, according to interlocutors, the President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro (PL), asked the economic team for a study of the impact that the payment of the new floor will have on the public coffers. Initially, it is expected to cost around R$ 16 billion.
During his speech this Thursday (8), the Minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), Luís Roberto Barros, threw even more responsibility for the Planalto Palace to find a way to solve the problem.
“I am committed to making this floor possible. My view and that of many is that without building a source of funding, it would be very difficult to get this salary floor off the ground,” he said.
On Sunday (4), Barroso suspended the law approved by Congress and sanctioned by the President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro (PL), which stipulates a salary floor for nursing.
Barroso took the decision to suspend the law to better assess its impact on the health system. He also requested further clarification within 60 days on public spending and the risk of mass layoffs, for example.
This Friday, the virtual plenary of the Supreme Court began to analyze the decision of Luís Roberto Barroso. So far, only two ministers have voted to maintain the suspension: Barroso himself and Ricardo Lewandowski. The trial runs until next Friday, September 16th.
