Bills decree, the Government trusts the Senate.  Voting at 2pm


The government has placed the Senate’s confidence issue on the Bill bills, containing urgent measures to support families and businesses for the purchase of electricity and natural gas, as well as in matters of health and tax compliance.

The confidence was announced by the Minister for Relations with Parliament, Luca Ciriani, on the same text already approved by the Chamber, as it arrived in the hall at Palazzo Madama without the mandate for the rapporteur, as the discussion in the joint Finance and Finance committees had not been concluded Healthcare.

The session was suspended and will resume after the conference of the group leaders, for the explanations of vote and the final vote on the measure.

According to what was established by the group leaders’ conference, we will go directly to the explanations of vote which will start at 11.45. There won’t be before 1.15 pm the call for the vote of confidence, the outcome of which will therefore presumably arrive around 2.00 pm.

«With the Bollette decree, the government continues with the aid policy it has already started, taking on the problems of Italians who work and produce. In addition to interventions to stem the rise in electricity and gas bills, the government is implementing measures that concern the health system and tax compliance.

Starting from the operation of the emergency rooms on the national territory, principals which unfortunately are no longer able to guarantee the extraordinary and fundamental service to the citizens for which they are in charge. There is also the age-old problem of the shortage of doctors and healthcare personnel, which is solved by providing adequate salaries, thus avoiding the use of so-called “token holders”.

At the same time, the safety of doctors and nurses who work on the front lines is guaranteed, with the establishment of police posts to supervise hospital structures. As for tax obligations, on the other hand, payments are allowed to be deferred, helping taxpayers to meet deadlines and allowing families, entrepreneurs, VAT numbers to restart more easily”.

Forza Italia senator Francesco Silvestro said it in the Chamber, speaking in the general discussion on the Bollette decree.

«In this Parliament the government’s honeymoon is now over, there hasn’t been a time for reform. It didn’t come with this decree-law in which we would have imagined the possibility of intervening at least surgically, putting in place some system reforms that had also been announced, above all from the point of view of health, where instead we went backwards or made some pies. The same happened on the big questions, the energy ones, the energy infrastructure and likewise the questions concerning the fiscal part”. Thus the senator of the Democratic Party Beatrice Lorenzin, speaking in the Chamber at Palazzo Madama on the bills.

«Unfortunately – underlines Lorenzin – neither in this decree-law, nor in the budget law, nor in the milleproroghe measure, nor in the measures that we see next to us, the historical problems of financing the National Health Fund, to which contemporary facts are added, therefore the impact of inflation on the Fund and on health care costs and the huge issue linked to health personnel.

The Minister had promised that this decree-law would deal with issues that had also been postponed by the budget law and which therefore had not been addressed: first of all, the issue of first aid and urgency, the remuneration and stabilization of personnel, and issues related to specialist training and the so-called Calabria decree.

We had the announcement that the issue of token holders was being put to an end, to then go back; we got the announcement that we were going to fix the year-round salary and benefit hikes for emergency room workers, and we went back. But where are the reforms? When does the government present these reforms to us? When will we have a health personnel reform? When will we have nurse recruitment and training reform? Also on the need to hire foreign personnel, for example, because we have a shortage in some areas of the sector», concludes Lorenzin.
