The complaint refers to the approval by the Congress of a Bill that promotes the division of R$ 690 million that would initially be allocated to the ministry. The amount will be sent to other ministries, such as Education, Health and Regional Development. The change came from an official letter signed by Minister Paulo Guedes (Economy), sent this Thursday, 7th, to the Mixed Budget Committee (CMO) of the Congress.
“This urgently needs to be corrected”, wrote Pontes. In justification for the request, the Economy folder claimed that the 2022 Budget proposal will considerably increase the resources for research projects.
Originally, the National Nuclear Energy Commission (Cnen) would receive R$ 34.578 million and the National Scientific and Technological Development Fund (FNDCT), R$ 655.421 million. In the new format, the resources for the FNDCT dropped to just 1.10% of the original proposal.
