Lawmakers tighten controls over government salaries, except theirs

Santo Domingo.- The Deputies approved Tuesday the bill to regulate government wages, but exempts the Congress from the regulations of the legislation which president Leonel Fernandez is expected to sign into law.

The lower Chamber excluded Congress from Article 26 of the piece, which eliminates travel expenses and other perks such as forming part of committees and other activities normal for legislators.

With the amendment, the piece, declared urgent and approved in two consecutive roll calls, returns immediately to the Senate, where it’s also expected to pass as received, but only after the mandatory passing of at least 24 hours.
