The front of all will seek to advance this week in the Chamber of Deputies in the signing of opinions on a set of initiatives to support economic growth and productive development, which the ruling party will try to sanction in the first half of May, since these are projects that have a high parliamentary consensus.

The FDT bench will try to issue favorable opinions to the projects to promote the cannabis industry and industrial hemp, and money laundering to activate construction, which contains tax benefits for undeclared assetsthe agency reported Telam.

The President of the Chamber of Deputies, Serge Massahas been raising the need to approve this project that includes a bridge to work for those who receive a social plan, so that they can enter the labor market.

The bill contemplates that, within 365 days, holders of social programs that are contracted by the construction sector within the framework of projects achieved by the regime, they will be able to maintain the plans.

The intention of the ruling party is to sanction these projects in the first fortnight of May, which are part of a dozen initiatives that are key to the objective of the National Government to support productive development.

This agenda also includes agribusiness projects, Argentine purchases, electromobility, incentives for the automotive and tourism industries, which will begin to be debated in the coming weeks, after the formation of the economic commissions.

The ruling party trusts that it will be able to approve these bills without difficulty since they have the support of the majority of the political blocs, which is essential to sanction any initiative in the Chamber of Deputies due to the extreme parity that exists in this legislative body, where the FDT has 118 members and JXC 116.

But not only the Government requested the sanction of these proposals submitted by the Executive Branch, but also the 10 governors of different political extraction that form the Norte Grande and the leadership of the Argentine Industrial Union, in meetings that they held in recent days with Massa.

The first step that the ruling party will take to sanction these initiatives is to issue the respective commission dispatches on Tuesday, which must then be sanctioned in the session venue.

The Labor Legislation Commission – chaired by Cecilia Moreau (FDT)- will meet at 3:00 p.m. to sign the dispatch of the project promoted by Massa and Christian Ritondo (PRO) to extend throughout 2022 the law of incentives to promote construction, which allows to reduce taxes on unregistered money laundering.

In December, this extension was included in the opinion of Budget 2022which was finally rejected by the opposition vote, for which this system could not be extended in order to launder these funds with tax benefits to be used for construction.

According to the agenda, the Budget and Treasury Commission -led by Carlos Heller- will meet at noon to sign an office in favor of the Creation of the Temporary Regime of Tax Reimbursements for the acquisition of the units that provide the service of rental motor vehicles with a taximeter, and another to extend until December 31, 2072 the specific allocations planned for cultural industries and institutions.

Later, at 2:00 p.m., a plenary session of the Agriculture and Livestock Commissions – now in the hands of the radical opposition Richard Buryaille– and Budget will seek to issue an office on the medical cannabis and industrial hemp industry development project, to provide a regulatory framework for public and private investment throughout the chain and complement the current legislation, Law 27,350, which authorizes the therapeutic and palliative use of that plant.

In the case of industrial hemp, it aims to legalize the productive links, the commercialization links and their by-products.

The project also contemplates the creation of a regulatory agency, a new public actor that will serve as the governing body and articulator of the cannabis production chain and will be in charge of the multiple regulatory bodies involved: the Regulatory Agency for the Hemp Industry and the Medicinal Cannabis (Ariccame). This entity will have technical, functional and financial autarchy, and will orbit within the scope of the Ministry of Productive Development.

When analyzing applications for licenses to produce medicinal or industrial cannabis, the new agency will establish the requirements and background information that will be requested from the applicant, in order to “maximize the controls aimed at preventing illegal activities, including money laundering.”
