Slippery Slope

Notes From a Crumbling Democracy

Political: 29 March, 2011

without comments

The Knesset (Israeli parliament) yesterday approved in first reading a new bill, which allows the Minister of Religious Services to increase the share of the Local Council in the funding of its own Council of Religions. The bill does not require the increase to be approved by the Finance Committee of the Knesset, or even to consult the local municipality. The bill will be brought for second and third hearing tonight (while many Knesset Members will be absent).
