The vote on the PL that extends the exemption from the payroll entered the CCJC’s voting agenda due to the approval of the PEC (Proposed Amendment to the Constitution) of the Precatório in the Plenary of the Chamber last week.
In Kicis’ evaluation, however, the fiscal adjustment promoted by the PEC, with the permission for the Union’s debts recognized by the Courts to not be paid in full and with the change in the calculation of the federal government’s spending ceiling, is what allows the maintenance of the subsidy. This is also the understanding of the Ministry of Economy.
“Minister Paulo Guedes made the approval of this PEC a condition. I go along with what the government team said. We approved the PEC in the Chamber, we are going to guide the exemption and, God willing, approve it”, he commented.
Last week , the leader of the government in the Senate, Fernando Bezerra Coelho (MDB-PE), stated that the exemption is not necessarily linked to the PEC. According to the senator, the tax relief project does not depend on fiscal space, but on a resolution by the TCU (Court of Accounts of the Union).
