The Slovak Parliament passed a legislative proposal aimed at easing the negative consequences of the global crisis on the country's banking sector to its second reading on Wednesday, June 17, the TASR newswire reported.

The proposal, which was backed by both coalition and opposition MPs, creates the conditions for the possible provision of state stabilisation aid for banks affected by the global crisis.
