The Knesset’s Finance Committee approved (Haaretz) within a little more than an hour and fifteen minutes budget changes worth 15 billion Shekels.  The committee members were presented with booklets hundreds of pages long and including thousands of changes and fund transfers.  The committee did not discuss each of the items individually, and voting was held on each of the two booklets as a whole.  One of the booklets was presented to the members last week, while the other one was handed to them during the hearing, a short time before voting commenced.
