Share The fire emergency finally arrives at Ars. Requested by numerous political forces as early as August, the extraordinary session of the regional parliament could not be held due to the technological modernization work that took place during the summer in the Sala d’Ercole. Now, the president Gianfranco Micciché, in agreement with the councilor for the Territory and Environment, Toto Cordaro, has called the Chamber for tomorrow, Thursday 16 September, at 11, to address the discussion on the fires that this summer have devastated several areas of Sicily, such as the Madonie area, in the Palermo area, creating considerable damage to businesses and families. Thus ended the first session of the Sicilian Regional Assembly after the summer holidays.

There are also two texts that will be discussed next week, after the deadline for the presentation of the amendments: the report for 2019 of the Sicilian Region, ready after the contested judgment of equalization by the Court of Auditors, and the draft law on forestry, with extension of the working days for an expense of 1.5 million, as specified by the president of the Budget Commission of Palazzo dei Normanni, Riccardo Savona.
