Green light to the bill on the provisional exercise for three months. The Ars Budget Committee, chaired by Riccardo Savona, has approved the bill which authorizes compulsory spending in twelfths until March 31st. The government text originally provided for the use of the provisional exercise for two months, but the commission approved an amendment, presented by the opposition, which prolongs it. President Savona is satisfied: "We have tried to bring home a maneuver that will serve the Sicilians to start the new year and to cover the amounts due in 2019, following the appointment of the Court of Auditors on 13 December – he said at the end of the session – We hope to be faster and more timely with the stability law which must be approved by March 31st ". The commission has repealed article 2 relating to the transfer of the health system loan to the regional budget, postponing the discussion of the rule to the stability law. Article 6 was approved which authorizes the expenditure, equal to 250 thousand euros, for the functioning of the regional technical specialist commission that deals with issuing the Via-Vas environmental authorizations. Funds that will be repaid with the stability law. With an amendment to the same article, 250 thousand euros have been allocated for the reclamation consortia to block the tax collection files for the payment of the water supply in agriculture. Important is article 7 which establishes a compensation fund of 15.9 million euros intended to guarantee the salaries of a number of bodies, associations, theaters that were waiting for part of the salaries of 2019 and to pay the salaries of some categories (for a total of 4 million 446,978.77 euro): Pip basin, LSU (socially useful workers), Resais staff, service sites in favor of the Municipalities receiving the Minimum Income of Income (RMI) and additional emoluments for the carabinieri. The bill guarantees, among others, funds for the whole of 2020 (and not only until March 31) for Sicilian theaters (Massimo and Biondo of Palermo, Sicilian Symphonic Orchestra, Vittorio Emanuele of Messina, Bellini theater and Stabile di Catania, National Institute of Ancient Drama), the Reclamation Consortia, ESA and the foresters. Finally, go-ahead for article 10 which provides, for 2020, a reserve of the former Provinces of about one million to be allocated to "former after-school" staff of the municipalities of Paternò and Santa Maria di Licodia.
