The National Congress has drafted a common law in which it declares that it will not comply with the decision of the Federal Court (STF) to give wide publicity to the rapporteur’s amendments in 2020 and 2021, which constitute the “secret” or ” parallel “budget. In the text, it was decided that the names of MPs and Senators who have allocated funds from the “secret” budget so far will not be disclosed. The aim is to only make public requests made in the future. The information was published by Estadão.
Twenty days ago, Minister Rosa Weber suspended the implementation of the rapporteur’s amendments and decided that the executive and the legislature should publicize the distribution of these funds widely. The Minister’s decision was confirmed by the plenary of the Court by 8 votes to 2, the last 10.
In the act, which should be published this Friday (26), the legislators argue that there is “a factual impossibility to retroactively establish a procedure for recording requests received by the general rapporteur with a suggestion of allocation of resources by parliamentarians, mayors, governors, ministers. of State, associations, citizens, formulated in the daily dynamic exercise of the mandate ”.
The President of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG), is due to convene a session of Congress this Friday to vote on a draft resolution regulating the amendments of the rapporteur for the 2022 Budget.
