The Parliament should consolidate efforts and vote for drastic reforms. The legislative framework of the pension, healthcare reform, affordable medicines, support of housing subsidies, reforms on decentralization as well as on energy efficiency requires discussion and prompt adoption of consolidated decision. This was stated by Vice Prime Minister/Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities Hennadii Zubko at the meeting of the conciliation council at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
«A separate question is a land reform. Bill №4355 (“On amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine on extension of powers of local governments on land administration and strengthening control of use and protection of lands”) ought to be supported by Parliament: take away the land from the officials and give it to local authorities. This bill is being discussed for a year and a half in Parliament, and it must be adopted. Land is the thing that now community is lacking. Another important bill № 4773 (“On amendments to the Budget Code of Ukraine regarding voluntarily joining territorial communities”). This will offer an opportunity to transfer to direct allocations from the state budget for all consolidated communities recognized as wealthy,» stressed the Vice Prime Minister.
Hennadii Zubko drew attention to the fact that there had been developed a roadmap for energy efficiency in the country aimed at reducing energy consumption. "Support bills that are in the second reading, inter alia laws regarding energy efficiency, a draft law on “Housing and Communal Services”, a draft law "On Commercial Accounting of Utility Services” as well as tools designed to provide technical and financial support to our citizens: a draft law "On Energy Efficiency Fund” and a bill "About Energy Efficiency of Buildings”, underlined the Vice Prime Minister.
The Vice Prime Minister stressed the importance of adoption of legislative package regarding environmental policy, information policy, strengthening of cyber security, civil service, as well as tax policy. "We count on constructive cooperation during this plenary session!,” underlined Hennadii Zubko.
