After more than 12 hours of debate, the Chamber of Deputies failed this Thursday night in its attempt to approve the legislation as established by the legislation, so it decided to continue with the discussions at dawn on Friday, October 21.
The Income Law was only approved in general with 266 votes in favor and 212 votes against this Thursday, however the nearly 400 reservations imposed by the opposition parties made it difficult for it to also be approved in particular.
The lower house had until October 20 to approve the LIF.
This delay generates pressure on the Chamber of Senators, whose members must analyze, discuss and vote on the Income Law before next October 31, first in commissions and then in plenary.
Thus, a session open within the legal limit is still valid, even if the limit is exceeded in the "normal" calendar.
Earlier, with 270 votes in favor; 217 votes against and one abstention, the deputies approved the proposal for the Federal Rights Law 2023 sent by the federal government, through the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP).
The Federal Law of Rights is a fiscal order that establishes the collection of rights for the provision of public services or for the use, enjoyment or exploitation of the nation's public domain assets, which requires constant adjustments in relation to changes and requisitions of the dependencies that provide the services.
