The urgency needed 257 votes to be approved, but got 253.

The urgency of the project was considered essential by the government, who traded their approval since the beginning of the week. The intention was to try to vote on the merits of the matter soon after. both, the government has to withdraw on Wednesday the constitutional urgency of five projects submitted by President Dilma Rousseff away, including three so-called package of anti-corruption, that locked the agenda.

In an attempt to advance, the government has to promote a meeting of opposition leaders with the proposal of the rapporteur, Mr Spyridon Amim (PP-SC), to try to reach a settlement on divergent, but there was no agreement.

The main point of controversy is the counterpart required states to join the new refinancing, or what, for the opposition, would create the possibility of the servers withdrawal of rights in social security and statutory issues.

"The counterparts put the states are absolutely unacceptable. You pass the rule homogeneously on all states, prevents autonomous relationship of governors on their workers and also establishes what is in PEC 241, already putting the Law, without going through the qualified quorum that requires a PEC, the ceiling of expenditure for inflation. This is the end of public health and education policies in the states ", he added Jandira.
