The 2006 budget will be priorities in the State Duma's fall session
The 2006 budget and the implementation of the president's state of the nation address will be priorities in the State Duma's fall session, the speaker of the lower chamber said Tuesday. "Our work will be particularly intense from now on, because we aim to make the 2006 budget a development budget," Boris Gryzlov said. "New instruments should appear in it, most importantly the investment fund." Most of the deadlines for the legal initiatives included in the president's address come in the fall session, which will begin September 5. "Some of the initiatives have already been implemented, for example the change in inheritance tax law, and cutting the statute of limitations on void transactions," he said. Duma deputies have been focusing on two initiatives, he said. "These are a federal draft law on the procedure for parliamentary investigations, and legislative amendments to increase public sector wages," he said. Duma deputies intend to discuss simplifying the procedure for declaring private funds, and a bill will soon be submitted to the Duma. Gryzlov also said that during the fall session, work on the economic draft bills passed by the Duma in the first reading would continue. These include the forest and water codes, and a law on competition. A government bill on mineral resources may be considered during the session. According to the speaker, the Duma and the government also intend to work together on a bill establishing a state monopoly on the production and turnover of alcohol.
