Edelstein: Kahlon must shrink the Economics Arrangements Bill

The Economics Arrangements Bill must be significantly shortened, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and Knesset Legal Adviser Eyal Yinon said Monday.

The bill, which has yet to be officially submitted, is passed at the same time as the budget each year and outlines the basic economic policies that are meant to accompany the budget. It is usually very long and often features articles that have little to do with the budget.

Yinon wrote a letter to Edelstein stating that from reviewing government decisions and memos from the Finance Minister, it is clear that the EAB is going to be long and feature many dozens of articles on many areas, many of which are not directly connected to the budget, including significant reforms.
