Private public agreement criticized
The spokesman of a conservative political party criticized the state attempt to sign additional agreements with private companies in order to build infrastructure.
Social Encounter Party spokesperson Aarón Pallares Aceves said the schemes represent a series of abuse and hide special interests by state officials.
He recalled Assembly members are discussing the creation under this form of a super emergency center called C5 that might be in violation of state law.
According to the agreement, the state will pay 80 million pesos or $4.7 million per year for the next decade and the state must provide guarantees in case of lack of payment.
The spokesman said similar projects might have cost less and would avoid the state from incurring in additional debt if the state would have moved forward with the projects itself.
These agreements will impact the state expenditures until 2056, said Pallares.
