At today’s sitting, the Riigikogu continued the voting on the motions to amend the State Budget of 2014 Bill (490 SE) which had begun on Wednesday. There are a total of 402 motions.
60 motions having been voted on at the sitting which began on Wednesday and ended today at 9.44 a.m., today’s sitting ended with motion No 76. None of the motions was supported at today’s sitting.
The voting has been taking so long because members of the opposition have been using the opportunity to ask for a recess of up to ten minutes before each voting on a motion to amend, provided for in the Riigikogu Rules of Procedure and Internal Rules.
As the legislative proceeding of the state budget is expected to linger, the President of the Riigikogu has convened four additional sittings, the first of which will begin today at 5 p.m.
At first, the 77th motion to amend will be voted on at this additional sitting.
