Uruguayan deputies vote a budget bill

Montevideo, Aug 11 (Prensa Latina) The Finance Commission of Uruguay's deputies on Wednesday approved the Budgetary Accountability Bill, only voted by the ruling party and rejected by the opposition Broad Front.

This organization, prior to the plenary session, agreed with the opposition in 98 of 315 articles discussed separately, but there are still controversial contents ahead, even within the same electoral ruling coalition of right-wing parties.

According to the National Party (PN) legislator, Sebastian Andujar, differences persist with the partner Colorado Party (PC) regarding the First Childhood Program, the trust fund to eradicate settlements and the creation of the Free Zones Directorate.

Faced with the idea of the ruling PN of allocating 50 million dollars to distribute some 25 dollars per month to families with children in vulnerable situations, the PC and Cabildo Abierto (Open Cabildo) legislators are fighting to devote this allocation to strengthen child and family care centers (CAIF).

For his part, the deputy of the Broad Front, in charge of the minority report, Gustavo Olmos, pointed out that there are still a number of undefined issues ahead, including a proposal for the creation of a vaccination center, which his political force will support.

The ruling party’s bloc is settling the rejection of lobbyists to create a new National Directorate of Free Zones and, at the same time, is calling for access to the information of the Institute of Cannabis Regulation to the Ministry of the Interior, which the National Drug Board considers unnecessary and in violation of recreational consumers’ privacy.
