The Days of Republic of Bashkortostan are opened in State Duma
Solemn opening of the Days of Republic of Bashkortostan in State Duma of Russia has taken place in Moscow. In opinion of the State Duma Chairman Boris Gryzlov this action gives the Republic a chance to demonstrate its achievements and discuss many important questions, which can become the base for the future federal bills, with the leadership of the Russian parliament.
“The percent of regional initiatives, finally becoming the federal laws, has noticeably risen for the last several years” – Boris Gryzlov said – “Ten years ago just 1-2% of the proposals, offered by the regional parliaments, became the laws.
