Left-wing NGOs declare war on Economic Arrangements Bill

The Economic Arrangements Bill must be canceled, a forum of NGOs wrote in a letter to members of Knesset ahead of Wednesday’s first vote on the budget.

The group of organizations, many of which are associated with the Left, like the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, Rabbis for Human Rights and Shatil, pointed to a long list of things they found to be problematic with the EAB, which is passed in tandem with the budget each year.

The EAB 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.
