The Attorney General of the Union, Bruno Bianco, defended the amendments of the rapporteur, which are under consideration of the Federal Court (STF) this Wednesday afternoon. According to him, the tools are based on the prerogative of Congress to define the allocation of resources through amendments by the general rapporteur. “It is in paragraph 2 of article 166 of the Constitution, which provides for the appreciation of the amendments in regimental form and is broadly reflected in the infra-constitutional legislation”, he said, during the support for the hearing, adding that paragraph 3 of the article . 166 also gives parliamentarians extensive powers in matters of amendments and budget within the Joint Budget Commission (CMO).
“There is no impediment of any kind. There is, yes, an express device that refers to the regulation of the National Congress”, he argued. According to Bianco, the absence of an express constitutional provision does not mean that these amendments present an intrinsic opposition to the Constitution. He specifies that the rapporteur’s amendments are different from the amendments that have a direct discipline in the constitutional text, the individual and collective amendments. These amendments, according to the AGU, meet the structural needs of various budgetary bodies and units and should not be confused with individual, collegial and rapporteur amendments.
Bianco cited the decree of the President of the Republic, issued on November 9, 2021, which authorizes, in article 3, the Minister of Pasta to ask the general rapporteur for information on the indications for the transfer of the amendments made by the parliamentarians. “This decree clearly provides for publicity and transparency in communications between bodies, funds and entities of the federal government and the general rapporteur for the budget,” he defended him.
