Rabat - The House of Representatives (Lower House) passed, during a plenary session on Wednesday, the 2011 appropriation bill by a majority, after a second reading.
Economy Minister, Salaheddine Mezouar, said that the government approved 32 amendments by the Upper House and 25 others by the Lower House, underlining the government's "openness" to the propositions of parliamentary groups. The latter maintained that the second reading of the appropriation bill allowed the members of the Lower House to further debate on some of the bill's provisions and measures, notably those introduced by the Upper House. A good deal of these amendments aim to complete provisions passed by the Lower House, the MPs said, commending the social amendments introduced by the Upper House, relating in particular to the tax code and the customs and indirect tax code.
