Deputies of the parliamentary committee on social policy, health, labor, family and children as part of the second reading continued to work on a law-in-draft providing for additional state support for the participants of the Great Patriotic War. The document was received from the President Vadim Krasnoselsky in the regime of legislative necessity and was adopted by the deputies in the first reading at the last plenary meeting.
Taking into account the comments and proposals of the profile committee, the law-in-draft was submitted to the Supreme Council for consideration.
Parliamentarians discussed legislative initiatives concerning compensation payments to citizens on Soviet savings. The committee received two bills. In one, it is proposed to legislatively fix the right to receive "burned" deposits by beneficiaries of the recipients according to the established order. Another initiative is an alternative to the current concept of the payment order. In accordance with it, it is proposed to compensate the lost savings to all citizens proportionally to the invested funds annually for a number of years. Taking into account the experience gained in the implementation of similar payments in the post-Soviet space, the first law-in-draft received a positive evaluation of the committee.
The Committee continued discussing the law-in- draft on the approval of the state targeted program for providing housing to orphans. The initiative was considered in the second reading. Deputies supported amendment, suggesting an increase in the duration of the state program to 10 years. There are about 600 orphans in the Republic today. More than 60 million rubles is needed to provide them with housing.
Deputies of the Committee on Social Policy proposed to consider the possibility of applying the mechanism for the participation of the state and this category of citizens in the purchase or construction of housing with a view to the most effective implementation of the program. Children when they reach adulthood, who are brought up in boarding homes accumulate in their accounts a certain amount of money paid to them by the state in the form of benefits. In the opinion of parliamentarians, some of these funds, so that they really were spent with profit, could be spent on the acquisition of housing. As, for example, this happens with the payment of maternity capital in Russia: the funds are provided for their use for certain purposes.
