Parliament to vote on state budget on Wednesday

14-12-2004

The Lower House of Parliament will vote on next year's state budget on Wednesday. The Chamber's Budget Committee has recommended that MPs should approve close to 600 proposed amendments. Three hundred proposals sent in by governors, mayors and organizations have already been rejected. The government's budget proposal puts revenues at 824 billion, spending at 908 billion and a deficit of 83 billion crowns. In Wednesday's vote the governing coalition will have to rely on its slim, one-vote majority in the Lower House.
