Senator Jean-Paul Prates (PT-RN), in a statement on Tuesday (30), registered that he agrees to the request to deny and reinstate MP 1.135 / 2022which postpones until 2024 the beginning of compliance with the laws of Paulo Gustavo (Supplementary Law 195 of 2022) and Aldir Blanc 2 (Law 14399 of 2022). The two standards allocate resources to encourage the cultural sector, which has been hit hard by the pandemic.
The senator noted that the federal government is again deferring transfers of R$3.86 billion to the cultural and event sectors enshrined in three laws created due to the COVID-19 pandemic: the laws of Paulo Gustavo (Supplementary Law 195, from 2022) and Aldir Blanc 2 (Law 14399 of 2022) and Perse (Law 14148 of 2021).
– We do not accept at all that there should be a third period in the discussions of the National Congress. Since President Bolsonaro always speaks in four lines of the constitution. This kind of debate has already taken place, and it has already been defeated three, four, five times, including the veto. We cannot admit that the President, dissatisfied with the decision of the National Congress, began to issue provisional measures to repeat matters already dealt with in this House and in the neighboring House – and he regretted it.
Jean-Paul also reported that he requested a return, for the perversion of purpose, from MP 1.136 / 2022 Which brings new rules for applying resources from the National Fund for Scientific and Technological Development (FNDCT).
The senator noted that the government “has a real pettiness, malicious intransigence to take money and emergency funds from science, technology and innovation.” For him, this temporary measure is another unnecessary emergency:
– Since 2021, we have witnessed this clash, this insistence by the Bolsonaro government to withdraw scientific research resources from universities and research centers. We had to pass a law Supplementary Law 177 of 2021to ban emergency. So, we buried the allegations, we thought we had buried Bolsonaro’s allegations of withdrawing funds from FNDCT, which is no surprise to now appear, again using a temporary measure, as if to cancel the game and start over – he said.
