People’s deputy of the Samopomich Union faction, Viktoriia Voitsitska, urges the parliamentarians to consider and vote in the second reading for the bill №3038, which provides for decentralization of rent payments from hydrocarbon production.
“This bill is an element of fiscal decentralization. Adoption of the bill will have a direct impact on the budget 2017; it will increase the volume of local budgets among other things,” says Viktoriia Voitsitska.
The MP adds that, according to the international practice, this is exactly the way to stimulate support from the local communities in obtaining special permits for companies that produce gas. So, adoption of the bill №3038 is an important condition both for the development of gas production industry and for the development of local communities.
