On the agenda of deputies agrarians

Комитет по вопросам АПК, транспорту, строительству, природным ресурсам и экологии

20.05.2019

Deputies of the Committee on agriculture, transport, construction, natural resources and ecology discussed the changes in the Customs Code and the budget of the Road Fund, proposed by the President. It is about simplifying the procedure for declaring a number of vehicles imported into the territory of our republic. These are cars intended for transportation of people, vans, racing cars, motorcycles, mopeds, vehicles for the carriage of goods. According to the developer of this law-in-draft, the proposed changes will ease tensions at customs checkpoints, and will also increase the number of imported vehicles and, as a result, increase the amount of income received by the budget.

The committee members supported the amendments to the law “On compulsory insurance of civil liability of vehicle owners”. They relate to the maximum number of persons that the insured has the right to allow to drive a vehicle, as well as the insurer's duties, the list of documents to be submitted when concluding an insurance contract, as well as expanding the list of grounds for returning the insurance premium upon early termination of the contract.

Deputies of the Committee on AIC supported the government law-in-draft on the abolition of the law “On financial rehabilitation and reform of the organizations of the AIC”. This law was adopted under the Program for the Improvement of Enterprises of the Agro-Industrial Complex, one of the main goals of which was to restructure the debts of organizations of the agro-industrial complex. The state program itself was adopted in 2004, and its validity period ended in 2011. By 2018, all the deadlines for implementing agreements on debt restructuring of agricultural enterprises have been exhausted.

The Committee in the course of the meeting considered the initiative of the Bendery City Council, amending the Land and Civil Codes. It is about the status of perennial plantations. In the current legislation, forests and perennial plantings are classified as immovable property and are attached to the land on which they grow. Deputies from Bendery offer to give the status of movable property to forests and other perennial plantations.

However, the deputies of the Committee did not support this initiative, because they suppose that perennial green plantings should maintain their previous status. This question, like the ones discussed above, will be brought up for discussion by the deputies at the next plenary session.
