The latest proposal studied by the federal government and the judiciary to deal with the nearly 90 billion reais in precariousness of the Union could end up generating a snowball of up to 1.4 trillion reais by 2036 , underlines a calculation drawn up by the Budgetary and Financial Control of the Chamber and obtained by the newspaper “O Estado de S. Paulo”.
What is known so far about the negotiation is that it plans to limit the payment of court orders to the same corrective rule as that used for the spending limit. That is, inflation measured by the correction in the CPI accumulated over the 12 months up to June. According to the model studied, for example, of the 89.5 billion BRL of debt to be paid in 2022, only 37.8 billion BRL would be paid. And over the next few years, new and old court orders would be added to the bill.
The study that shows the values was commissioned by former Chamber President Rodrigo Maia (DEM-RJ) and signed by consultants Graciano Rocha Mendes, Ricardo Volpe, Sérgio Tadao Sambosuke and Wagner Primo Figueiredo Júnior, depending on the vehicle.
The solution is being carried out jointly by the National Council of Justice and the Federal Supreme Court (STF), after the government renounced the PEC de precatórios, which has already been handed over to the National Congress and which provides for the payment of these installment debts. . For Minister Paulo Guedes, the latest measure is seen as “more efficient, faster, and even more legally adequate”.
The economic team has “pushed its head” to be able to find a solution to the precatório in the budget, whose deadline for submission to Congress is this Tuesday (31). By 2022, estimated court rulings spending will amount to nearly 70% of all discretionary spending planned by the government. Today, the Constitution allows the government to divide only very high court decisions, which individually exceed 15% of the total amount of court decisions planned for the year.
