BRASILIA (Reuters) – The presidents of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG), and of the Chamber, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), will meet this Monday afternoon with party leaders to discuss the enactment of parts of the PEC dos Precatórios, the so-called “slicing”, informed the office of the presidency of the Chamber.
According to a source who follows the negotiations, parliamentarians are close to an agreement for this sliced enactment, in an undated session of the National Congress, in an attempt to make it possible to pay the Auxílio Brasil this year. The resistance of senators to the enactment in installments is being overcome, according to this source.
The Proposed Amendment to the Constitution (PEC) of Precatório alters the rules for the payment of court-ordered debts, government debts whose payment was determined by the Court, and modifies the deadline for correction of the spending ceiling by the Broad Consumer Price Index (IPCA), measures adopted in order to open a fiscal space of more than 100 billion reais, in order to enable the payment of the new social program.
Already analyzed by the two Houses of Congress, the PEC was significantly modified in its processing in the Senate.
Under the constitutional and regimental rules, only the content in which the two Houses of Congress agree can be promulgated. For this reason, after approval in the Senate, it was returned to the Chamber. Slicing PECs is an instrument that parliamentarians often resort to. In this case, the devices in which there is divergence would have to go through the entire procedure in the Chamber again: Constitution and Justice Committee (CCJ) and special committee, before two rounds of voting in plenary.
Last week, Lira already acknowledged that there will not be enough time this year for the pending part to be analyzed in the Chamber. The changes promoted by the rapporteur of the proposal in the Senate, the leader of the government in the House, Fernando Bezerra Coelho (MDB-PE), may enter the list of topics to be left for later.
The senator changed the content of the PEC to determine, for example, that the aid will be permanent and removed from the text measures related to the securitization of tax debts, a topic that did not have a consensus in the House.
On the other hand, it inserted provisions linking the fiscal space to be opened with the change in the rule for the discharge of court orders to the expansion of social programs to combat poverty and extreme poverty, health, social security and social assistance.
“Another suggestion that we welcome… is to reduce the time that the sub-limit for court orders will be in effect. Instead of being in force for the entire time of the New Fiscal Regime, that is, until 2036, the sub-limit will last until 2026, allowing enough time for the Executive Branch to better monitor the process of calculation and formation of court orders and their fiscal risks, but without creating a liability of even more difficult budget execution”, said the rapporteur in the opinion approved by the Senate.
