If approved by the committees, the project will also have to be considered by the full House.
“Of course it is a project that needs to be discussed but rather consider that this is not the best way.

I do not think that reasonable today for tomorrow we are required to form an opinion about it”, said Ricardo Ferraço (PSDB-ES).

The postponement of the vote is one of the defeats suffered by Renan in recent days to try to topple a priority agenda for the Senate. The problem pointed out by party leaders was the lack of PMDB dialogue with other senators to set the package. They complained that they were not heard.
Last week, the two projects listed by Renan to be voted on had no agreement and their analysis were for this week. To try to appease the spirits, Senate President convened a meeting between the leaders in the afternoon.
