Torrent (Valencia), 23 Sep (EFE) .- The vice president of the Consell, Aitana Mas, assured that the Valencian government has not yet talked about numbers to prepare the budgets of the Generalitat for 2023 and no date has been set for the first meeting of the political committee that will negotiate the accounts.
All the information is being compiled to start the work and review the documentation that the Consellerias have delivered, to then discuss in the committee a first draft budget and how to balance income and expenses, Mas reported after the plenary session of the Consell, held this Friday in Torrent (Valencia).
The budgets will again include the claim and the fictitious item for the underfunding of € 1,336 million because a transitional fund has not been set up or a new regional financing system has been approved.
Speaking of other funds for the transition to the new normal, Mas indicated that he had not heard of “I do not know how many thousands of euros” are sought, and noted that everything will be seen in the coming weeks.
Asked about the tax cut announcements of other communities such as Andalusia and Madrid, the vice president said Andalusia has now joined the tax dumping “with a war between the two to see what a haven for the rich is,” and in this sense he defended “minimum” harmonization by the central government.
On the contrary, he said, the Botànic government aims “the opposite” and, instead of putting its magnifying glass on “very small segments of the population, those with the highest incomes”, it is working on a tax reform proposal that they meet the needs of families and people who have difficulty making ends meet, as was the case in 2017 and which benefited 1.5 million Valencians.
“In our case we are making proposals for the majority, while the PP, recently in Andalusia, does so for 0.2% of the population”, he criticized.
The Consell is committed to ensuring that companies can continue to invest in the Valencian Community and “this happens by having a company that does not endanger its public services”, according to Mas, which has had an impact on good health, education and services. public and ensure a welfare state that “can act as a springboard for good economic activity”.
