According to the head of the lower chamber of the federal parliament, "it will be short - it will last only four months, but very tense". The State Duma committees have 1121 legislative initiatives. The legislations are aimed at improving the quality of life of citizens, improving the economic situation in the country. Russian lawmakers voted to amend the Rules in order to increase the number of plenary sessions for more rapid review of documents. It will be held not twice a week, as before, but three times.
Priority of the deputy work will be the adoption of the federal budget, legislations on improving the pension system and the implementation of the President's Address. According to the Chairman of the State Duma, Russian parliamentarians will consider the budget for 2019 and the next two years. It is planned to discuss it by October 1 in the zero reading.
A large package of legislations is aimed at improving the pension system. The initiatives concern the retirement of social allowances. It is assumed that the benefits for travel in public transport, payment for utilities, the purchase of drugs will be tied to the age (from 55 years for women and from 60 years for men), and not to retirement. Russian colleagues in the State Duma will begin to consider changes in the pension legislation in the nearest future.
