<h2 itemprop="headline"> CDM CONTESTS IN LAW 'CURA ABRUZZO', NEW RULES AGAINST MAFIA PASCOLI, AID TO MUNICIPALITIES AND MICRO-CREDIT; REGION '' COVERS ARE THERE AND HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATED ''; YESTERDAY, HOWEVER, DISCOUNT ON TRANSACTIONS NOT SUBJECT TO OBSERVATIONS </h2>
In fact, in reading the resolution published yesterday on the website of the Ministry of Economy, to be accused of unconstitutionality, on the proposal of the Minister for Regional Affairs and Autonomies, Francesco Boccia, of the Democratic Party are the law on pastures, defended by the sword drawn from the League, and which disposes of priority access to civic land for livestock businesses that have been operating and residing in the area for at least ten years, in order to counteract the phenomenon of the “pasture mafia”, that is, the invasion of outside companies interested only in getting their hands on the rich European contributions, without actually breeding and producing milk, meat and cheeses.
Norm that was the subject of an attempt to sink by the Puglia Region and the Minister of Agriculture, the Apulian Teresa Bellanova, of Italia Viva.
The measures that provide for the enhancement of microcredit for companies, the “Buy Abruzzo”, to encourage the marketing of local products, the extraordinary funds to the municipalities to meet the expenses incurred in the covid emergency phase, were then contested for lack of economic coverage -19, to help needy citizens.
The region, led by the president Marco Marsilio, Of Fratelli d ‘Italia, has already replied that instead the covers are all right, and have been communicated to the Ministry, without this having been taken into consideration.
On fiscal peace, however, nothing at all: the council of ministers did not follow up on the harsh and circumstantial criticisms of the measure which instead were contained in the text of the investigation by the technicians of the ministry of the economy, sent to the CDM and to the General Accounting Office of the been on June 1st.
Yet yesterday political controversy broke out precisely on “fiscal peace”.
“So much it thundered that it rained: for weeks we warned and denounced in every way that Cura Abruzzo had uncertain coverage or did not have it at all, that the article of the rule on the amnesty which would have allowed transactions worth 162 million euros of which over 100 million from private health care, it was contrary to the law, as well as common sense, “said the leader of the Democratic Party Silvio Paolucci.
The secretaries general of Cgil, Cisl, Uil and Ugl are closely involved, Carmine Ranieri, Leo Malandra, Michele Lombardo is Gianna De Amicis, that in a note they recalled that “we had already reported the illegitimacy of the tax peace following which the Region could have given a gift of over 160 million euros to companies that have not respected the laws and negotiating contracts signed and who have a ongoing litigation with regional bodies “.
President Marsilio replied therefore defending the goodness of the law: “it is time to end it with lies: nobody intends to ‘give away’ anything, much less intend to do it to private health. The rule contains precise and explicit clauses to safeguard the public interest and budgetary balances. The transactions that will eventually be accepted must ‘agree’ also to the Region as well as to the proposer, and can only be disbursed by respecting the budget balance “.
Words that confirm the opinions of many, that in reality the rule is only a flag, because little or nothing changes compared to what is already foreseen for transactions.
A storm in a glass of water, in any case: no trace of the “fiscal peace” in the official resolution. If anything, the ministry technicians proposed the appeal.
Here is an eloquent passage of the report of June 1: “tax peace” could entail unquantified and not covered, as well as undue, charges for the Health Service bodies of the Abruzzo region which, moreover, is a region subject to the Return Plan and it still has an operating deficit today. It is noted that most of the disputes are related to requests from private providers accredited for the payment of extra-budget services and therefore not due by the Region “.
It’s still. “it is understood that this rule appears unduly favorable to businesses, to the detriment of the entities of the regional health service, including the centralized health management in the region”.
Therefore, “the appeal for indeterminacy of the norm in the quantification of the consequent charges” is requested.
So let’s move on to what was really challenged. First of all, and it is the really heavy decision, the law on pastures.
The Council of Ministers writes in the resolution, this time following up the preliminary investigation of the technicians: the first rule “has no relevance to the extraordinary and urgent measures for the economy and employment related to the epidemiological emergency and with the transitory nature of the law “, and” affects the rights of citizens by making a change with lasting consequences on the previous legislation “.
It is noted that there is “a distortion of the institution of civic uses, as the primary legal order of the original communities”, violating Article 2 of the Constitution, and taking into account that the law “recognizes the collective domains the ability to self-standardize, both for the objective and subjective administration, and for the restricted and discretionary administration, as well as the ability to manage the natural, economic and cultural heritage which belongs to the territorial basis of collective property, considered as intergenerational co-ownership “.
It is recalled that “even before the reform of Title V of the Constitution, the civilian regime of civic goods never passed into the sphere of competence of the Regions”.
In short, the Region has invaded a field not its own, has no competence in the matter.
And above all, there is a violation of the Treaty on the functioning of the European Union relating to “equal competition between economic operators”, as a consequence of the principle “first of Abruzzo”, which limits the sacred principle of market freedom.
On this rule, however, the Region will make a square, as already announced by Marco Marsilio yesterday, and even earlier by the Vice-President of Giunta and Councilor for Agriculture, Emanuele Imprudente, of the League, at the first signs of the probable appeal.
“On this issue, not only will we not step back but we will take the case to a national and European level. The government says what interests it wants to defend, instead of helping the regions to reject these perverse practices, “thundered the president.
Some measures were then challenged to support businesses and economic activities, due to the lack of quantified, safe and available coverage, and therefore in contrast with Article 81 of the Constitution.
The refinancing of the microcredit fund for new calls and for the sliding of the rankings, first of all, and the establishment of a revolving fund for the small loan of 10 million euros, and other support measures for companies in crisis.
And again the “Buy Abruzzo”, to encourage the offer and purchase by the citizens of regional products.
The measure that intends to establish a solidarity fund to contribute to the greater expenses of the Municipalities for the purchase of goods and services and for the overtime of employees, in the Covid-19 emergency phase. And also the paragraph that intends to always guarantee the municipalities extraordinary resources for the services of primary necessity in favor of the most fragile citizens. as home care for the disabled, the elderly and minors, food parcels, and canteens for the needy.
Lastly, the measure on the economic incentive for businesses was contested, “partially restoring the fixed and essential costs incurred in order to maintain continuous cycle plants, and the revolving funds in the agricultural sector.
Here too, however, the harsh reaction of the Region was recorded, by voice of Marsilio, and also of the vice-president of the council, Lorenzo Sospiri, of Forza Italia, and of the vice president Roberto Santangeloelected by Political Action.
All three ensured that the coverage has already been identified to us, certified by the regional offices, and communicated to the ministry, thanks to the reprogramming of European funds.
Marsilio complains: “the Government sends the Mef’s comments only on the evening of June 1, enabling us to get to know them only on June 3, and then replies with new and further arguments on the evening of June 4, demanding answers for June 5 morning, when the Council of Ministers ‘punctually’ challenges the law. This is not exactly what is called ‘loyal institutional collaboration’. (f.t.)
