The state budget for 2019 was adopted in parliament with 79 votes for, 45 against and one abstained.
A rebalance of the state budget for 2018 as well as projections for 2019 and 2020 were also adopted in parliament today with a majority vote. 79 MPs voted for, 45 were against and one abstained.
In voting for amendments to the state budget, the Milan Bandić club of representatives withdrew its amendment seeking textbooks for all elementary school students free of charge. They said they did so because they received a guarantee that money will be secured for the textbooks through redistribution.
After the government turned down all proposed amendments by MPs the parliamentary majority did the same. The opposition did not get an opportunity to affect the proposed budget which foresees revenues of 136 billion kuna and expenditures of 140 billion.
