Committees round-up: Daily

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

    

There are /// bodies in focus of our committee scan today:

 

Committee on Transport and Infrastructure

The committee held a field meeting to address the issues and development prospects of the PE “Boryspil” International Airport. In attendance, there was a wide community of experts at the sitting.

The meeting discussed prospects for building up a multi-modal transport hub, legislative and regulatory policy, problems of air carriers, and ways of solving their problems.

Participants were also informed about the airport's work, the state of affairs and its plans for the future.  The company maps out to expand the terminal "D", to further develop the terminal "F", to construct a modern cargo terminal and the like.

The committee decided to facilitate the legislative support to creating a level playing field for Ukrainian carriers and the elimination of discriminatory restrictions. Members of the committee also heard a representative of the Accounting Chamber on recent audit findings of PE Boryspil airport’s activities.

 

Committee on Humanitarian and Information Policy

The committee held an enhanced field sitting in Volyn, which was dedicated to functioning of cultural establishments in conditions of de-centralization. The focus of the discussion was put on art schools, museum, libraries and library science. Following the meeting, the committee will finalize and adopt a number of important decisions to be then sent out to the Cabinet, the youth ministry and other line ministries, agencies and departments.


Committee on Finance, Taxation and Customs Policy

The сommittee recommends to adopt it on the second reading the bill No.2047-d aimed at eliminating venal practices in property valuation procedures. The bill kills further use of so called “electronic platforms” engaged in property assessment procedures, as the platforms have teemed with corruption risks.

The purpose of the bill is to enable citizens to self-assess their property on the basis of automatic valuation. The committee also recommends that the Verkhovna Rada take it on the first reading the draft bill No.2166 made to extend single social contribution benefits over retirees conducting self-supporting professional activity.
