A new working week began in the legislature with a meeting of the Supreme Council Committee on Social Policy, Health, Labor, Family and Childhood. The deputies considered the legislative initiative of the President aimed at adjusting the planned monetary limits for financing the State Institution "Republican Sports Rehabilitation and Restoration Center for the Disabled." From January 1, 2020, it is planned to partially commission a multifunctional sports center for the disabled, which is located in the capital (Lenina St., 1/3). There will be gyms for table tennis, chess, drafts, as well as a gym. This will allow conducting competitions in these sports on the territory of the institution, to popularize physical education among the disabled, to carry out work on the socialization of this category of citizens.

The need for additional budgetary allocations for the remuneration of workers of the Republican sports rehabilitation and rehabilitation center for disabled people will amount to almost 1.5 million rubles.

The head of the relevant parliamentary committee Sergey Cheban drew attention of colleagues to the need for an operational review of this law-in-draft in connection with the consideration of the draft republican budget for next year.

The deputies unanimously supported amendments to the law determining the procedure for remuneration of public sector employees. Their entry into force is planned from January 1, 2020.

At the plenary meeting on December 11, the Supreme Council adopted in the first reading a law amending and supplementing the Law on Pharmaceutical Activities.

Legislative innovations proposed by the deputies of the responsible committee Sergey Cheban, Ilya Vasiliev and Vladimir Pelin were aimed at ensuring the security of the pharmaceutical market of Pridnestrovie, improving legal relations in the sphere of circulation of medical and pharmaceutical products, taking into account law enforcement practice, since protecting and protecting the health of citizens is the state’s primary task. They proposed to prohibit the import into the territory of the republic not registered in at least one of the CIS countries, including Ukraine, or the European Union of medical and pharmaceutical products. This legal norm was adopted by the deputy corps in the first reading with the aim of an additional measure to protect citizens of the PMR from the importation of substandard medicines for medical use.

Along with this, it is planned to clarify the norm providing for the procedure for the destruction of substandard, falsified medicines in the law-in-draft, adopted in the first reading by the Supreme Council. It is proposed to exclude cases of destruction of substandard medicines if a letter was received from the manufacturer about return.

Since there were no amendments to the document for the second reading, the deputies of the Committee on Social Policy recommended the deputy corps to adopt it in the final reading.
