Cabinet set to approve first SMK wish

A cabinet committee for regional government reform recommended August 31 that the ruling coalition approve a draft bill that has been prepared specifying which powers be devolved from the central to regional governments. The law had been a condition set by the Hungarian SMK party for remaining in the coalition. If passed in cabinet as expected by September 5, it moves to parliament where it must be again passed, by September 30, or the SMK will follow through on a threat to quit the government.
