Coalition pushes for settlement bill vote this week

Efforts to whip up votes in the coalition for a bill that would retroactively legalize thousands of homes built on private Palestinian property, including the Amona outpost, continue ahead of a planned first reading on Monday.

As of Saturday night, the coalition remained at the same impasse as on Wednesday, when the vote was originally supposed to take place, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and coalition chairman David Bitan (Likud) kept negotiating with the parties.
