UFA, 21 November 2017. /Bashinform News Agency, Galiya Nabieva/.
At the upcoming plenary session, the deputies of the State Assembly — the Kurultai of the Republic of Bashkortostan — plan to pass a law "On the budget of the Republic of Bashkortostan for 2018 and for the planned period of 2019 and 2020". The bill prepared for the second reading was approved by the relevant Committee for Budget, Taxation, Investment Policy and Territorial Development.
Currently, the republican next-year budget has the following main parameters: the projected total revenue is 153.4 billion rubles, the total expenditure is 162.4 billion, the press service of the regional parliament reported.
"The sums as expected increased in comparison with those that were in the original draft of the bill," commented on the Chairman of the republican parliament Konstantin Tolkachev. "The adoption of the federal budget in the first reading made it possible to specify a greater number of interbudgetary transfers. However, it will be possible to speak about the final parameters of the republican budget only after the federal budget as a whole is adopted".
The Chairman of the State Assembly noted that changes in the budget of Bashkortostan would be made after its final adoption. Such adjustments, usually in the direction of increasing revenues and expenditures of the budget, are made several times a year. The budget of the republic for the current year deputies was last corrected in September.
Speaking about the change in the expenditure part of the budget for the coming year, Konstantin Tolkachev noted that many decisions were made with due regard for the proposals of the deputies during the discussion of the draft law in the first reading by all committees of the republican parliament, as well as on the results of public hearings held in October.
