Once the deal is completed, the cabinet will have sufficient support for the bill in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. This clears the way for the introduction of the much-discussed ‘Temporary Covid 19 Measures Act’, also known as the corona law.
Corona fine down
The corona law is a temporary law in which the corona measures are included, such as the mandatory keeping distance. In order to get the parties behind the bill, the corona fine will therefore be reduced from 390 euros to 99 euros. This does not happen retroactively: for all those thousands of people who have already been fined, the old amount will continue to apply.
The emergency law will also be shorter than the cabinet initially wanted. Instead of six months, the duration of the law will be a maximum of three months, with the option of an extension of one month.
Sources to RTL Nieuws let it be known that an important condition for the support is that the law provides that parliament has the final say on the measures. A minister should therefore not be given the power to govern by decree.
Well a deal
The bill will soon have to be approved by the House of Representatives and the Senate, but there is now a majority in both Houses.
This means that the way is cleared for the introduction of the corona law.
Why did the law have to be introduced?
The corona rules are still laid down in so-called emergency regulations. That is the ultimate authority for a mayor to be able to monitor public order. But an emergency ordinance is actually intended for an acute crisis (such as preventing riots around a demonstration or football match), not to remain in force for months at a time.
That is why there was a call in the Lower House to come up with a law. This also gives the House more say about the policy of the cabinet. The cabinet actually wanted to introduce the law before 1 July. But there was considerable criticism, also from the most important advisory body, the Council of State.
