Parliament votes down several opposition proposed bills
2 Jul 2014 Flash News
Parliament held votes on a number of bills July 1, rejecting many of them.
The house green-lighted a bill submitted by governing Smer party MPs Ľubomír Petrák, Mojmír Mamojka and Ľubica Rosková, whereby applications for grants in research and development will no longer be automatically excluded for containing formal or technical shortcomings. A total of 127 legislators backed the motion whereby entities that will seek grants but submit applications with some formal or technical errors will be given 14 days to remedy the shortcomings.
The Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) aimed to add civic associations, non-profit organisations and foundations that employ people to the list of organisations that are eligible for state contributions for “the development of local and regional employment”. NOVA party head Daniel Lipšic and vice-chair Jana Žitňanská proposed that midwives should also be able to provide health care within public health insurance to women during pre-natal and post-natal periods in the women’s own homes. It was rejected.
