Parliament convened in joint plenary sitting on Tuesday has passed the draft State Budget Law 2021, by 234-to-170 votes.
The Government’s version of the state budget bill has been voted, with no amendments adopted. PSD had filed a total of 3,600 amendments, but they were all rejected by the Coalition majority. The state social security budget has also passed by 254 votes to 128.
“It is a first when the budget passes without any amendment. It proves we are a united, strong coalition, ready to resist 4 years”, said PM Florin Citu at the end of the plenary session. “This budget is based on record investments and reform. A reform that all had run away (…) this budget is forcing reform”, said the PM.
“The two past days have proved a very clear thing. There is a stable majority, a coalition that embarked on making reforms. Romania has a budget, a great challenge is starting from now on for these projects to come true“, said USR chairman Dan Barna.
