Maneuver, very tight deadlines. Taxation, pensions and competition have yet to be resolved

The budget session with the examination of the budget law which will go live next week, after the round of auditions. A little more than a month will therefore remain for the approval of the maneuver in the two houses of Parliament. Very tight deadlines that will allow only one complete examination of the provision at Palazzo Madama with the Chamber which will in all likelihood find itself having to ratify an “armored” text between Christmas and New Year.

A majority political center is therefore sought to avoid the temptation to take advantage of the reduced times of the examination of the maneuver to impose flag measures or for mutual tests on the Quirinale.

The president of the senators of the Democratic Party, Simona Malpezzi spoke with his majority colleagues about the “possibility of making a common path” on the budget law, along the lines of the proposal launched by the secretary dem Enrico Letta. While from the opposition the leader of the Brothers of Italy Luca Ciriani he denounced the fact that the government “has not yet responded” to the “rules of engagement” and reiterated the request that “at least the Senate can avoid trust”.

One of the potential battlegrounds in the majority is the fiscal chapter with the 8 billion euros available that the dem secretary Enrico Letta asks to be used for a “strong message” on taxes on labor. The M5S focuses on a cut in personal income tax and on the abolition of IRAP while the Lega insists on raising the threshold of flat tax.

Government-Unions table

Also on the fiscal front, the dialogue restarted with the trade unions is framed with the summit at Palazzo Chigi between Prime Minister Draghi, ministers Franco, Orlando and Brunetta and the secretaries of CGIL, CISL and UIL. The meeting showed a willingness to start a “technical study” on the use of the 8 billion euros available for tax cuts, while as regards pensions, the government said it was willing to open a discussion with meetings that will come fixed “shortly, as early as December” confirming that, however, there will not be “the resources to deal with a structural reform” in the maneuver.

In the background, another possible stumbling block comes from competition bill and the sentence of the Council of State which rejected the postponement to 2033 of the tender for bathing concessions. The text of the bill has not yet been transmitted from Palazzo Chigi to Parliament and the opposition has already reached a halt on the possibility that some of the measures will be introduced into the budget law.

You will also have to run with the examination of the tax decree to be approved before the budget law. The ‘skimming’ of the 900 amendments arrived in the Finance and Labor committees of the Senate is underway, where the government has made it clear that “there are currently no extra resources” and the changes can be approved as long as they have relative coverage.

Meanwhile, the budget bill has been assigned to the Budget Commission by the Presidency of the Senate which has given time until next Tuesday for the opinions of the other commissions. From Friday the cycle of hearings will begin, starting with associations and social partners and then ending on Tuesday with the economy minister Daniele Franco. Five rules for extraneousness of matter have been removed from the text, including the extension of the Immuni app.
