KNES­SET TO VOTE ON TWO-YEAR BUD­GET

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

ON WED­NES­DAY night the Is­raeli gov­ern­ment was work­ing to pass the state bud­get by the dead­line on Thurs­day. By law, fail­ure to hit the dead­line would force the gov­ern­ment to re­sign. The Knes­set is vot­ing on a two-year bud­get, cov­er­ing this year and next. The 2015 bud­get was not passed last year be­cause the coali­tion broke up be­fore it could be voted on. The bill is slated to pro­vide for a NIS 383.8 bil­lion spend in 2015 and NIS 424.8 bil­lion in 2016.
