На местные власти переложат часть расходов бюджета

Glad shifted to the local authorities of the spending budget

Local authorities will Fund schools (other than wages), vocational schools and sanatorium for tuberculosis patients and children.

The Verkhovna Rada has introduced amendments to the Budget code, according to which part of the costs in the health and education sectors will now be borne by the local authorities, not the state budget, as before.

From the local budgets will be paid the costs of the schools (other than wages), vocational schools and sanatoriums for tuberculosis patients and children.

In addition, local authorities will pay the costs for utilities and energy, healthcare institutions, benefits for communication services, other benefits and compensation for travel.

At the same time, the regions will receive money from the customs for the repair of roads.

This bill is part of the so-called budget package that is necessary for the approval of the budget for 2017.

Earlier it was reported that the local road will pass to the regional authorities.

Also we will remind that last year Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has signed a law expanding the powers of local councils.
