To try to cool down the resistance to the PEC of the Precatório, the government leader in the Federal Senate, Fernando Bezerra (MDB-PE), intends to present next Wednesday (24) changes to the original text of the proposal in his report to the CCJ (Commission of Constitution and Justice).
One of them is the inclusion of a permanent source of funding for Auxílio Brasil, a new income program that replaced Bolsa Família. The forecast has been requested by senators from the MDB and the PSDB.
“The economy is evaluating [a origem da fonte permanente]. Until tomorrow, we will have a position on this,” the senator told CNN.
The idea of the government leader, who is also the rapporteur of the proposal in the parliamentary committee, is to present a single text in the CCJ. An eventual slicing of the proposal, evaluated by the top of the National Congress, would be done after approval by the legislative body.
The Ministry of Economy is against the proposal for a parliamentary amendment suggested by opposition senators to remove from the public spending ceiling the payment of court orders scheduled for next year.
According to reports made to CNN, the technical area of the folder considers that the payment of the amount of R$ 89 billion through extraordinary resources would be a disaster, with the risk of putting further pressure on inflation for next year.
The assessment was transmitted to political articulators at the Palácio do Planalto, who are negotiating the vote on the PEC dos Precatórios in the Federal Senate.
The parliamentary amendment, suggested in an attempt to reach an agreement for the proposal, proposes the financing of Auxílio Brasil without the need to anticipate the revision of the spending ceiling.
