Kashrut law likely to be dropped from ministerial committee agenda

Shas leader and Economy Minister Arye Deri has backed away from an amendment to the kashrut law his party was supporting and now appears set to allow the bill, which was scheduled for a vote in the Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday, to be withdrawn from the agenda.

The legislation is opposed by Kulanu and has twice been withdrawn from the committee’s agenda in the last two weeks. The Attorney General’s Office is also thought to have expressed doubts as to the legality of the proposed law.

According to a report in Haaretz, Deri wants to wait and see how the High Court of Justice rules on a petition regarding the legitimacy of independent kashrut licensing, which is currently before the court, before advancing the amendment.
