The arrival of the pension reform the Senate (PEC 6/2019) promises to heat up the mood in the House from this week, when it begins to be discussed at the Committee on Constitution and Justice (CCJ) from home. The rapporteur, Senator Tasso Jereissati (PSDB-CE), openly advocates that colleagues confirm the text adopted by MEPs, without any changes to the PEC need not return to the House. While recognizing that the text voted in the House needs to be improved, especially with regard to new rules on security of states and municipalities, the toucan argues that the changes proposed by Senators are in parallel PEC that has the support of the chairman of the House, Davi Alcolumbre (Dent-off).

Despite the Tasso speech, several lawmakers insist they do not want to be mere Chamber of decisions of carimbadores. Although in favor of reform, one of these names is Senator Pliny Valerius (PSDB-AM). The congressman said in plenary, last week, It is "very concerned about what you have read so far". According to Senator, it is clear that those in need of retirement is the private company worker, the civil servant, and not the rich country. Unhappy with the text under which passed the House, Pliny Valerio said he hopes "the Senate does not steal its role as reviewer home".

Also welcomes the proposal, Senator Eduardo Girao (Podemos-EC) He believes that among the points that need to be modified in the text approved by the House is the anti-fraud device in granting the Continued Benefit (BPC). He also defended the inclusion of states and municipalities to reform.

"This reform is needed, sim, and important for Brazil. The responsibility is not only the government or the House, but also the Senate of the Republic, you can not avoid hearing the society in search of improvement to the text, in the name of justice and the good of the people. And this discussion can not be açodada. It needs to be mature, have serenity and this House has the prerogative to do this, ' "he said.

Already Senator Eliziane Range (Citizenship-MA) He pointed out that there are still points to be improved, such as pensions below the minimum wage, constitutionalization of the Continuous Cash Benefit (BPC) and the new rule to access the salary bonuses. Second senator, the intention is to work so that the final text is as close to what you need the Brazilian people.

The senator added that, if necessary, the opposition will block the vote, but admitted he could make a deal, if there is that possibility - approving the text base and creating a parallel PEC with the passages that senators consider harmful. "Our only goal is to get a better text also", highlighted.

Among contrary to the text, is Senator Jorge Kajuru (PSB-GO). For him, the poorest people will be sacrificed to the proposal. The senator said he will not accept "take there, gives here "to vote for the proposal. "I want to make clear and, are lying, please, Cassem my mandate and put me in jail: if I am offered an amendment penny to the state of Goiás, I proudly represent, is for health, is for education, even if my constituents rebelling me, I will not accept!”, he said.

The pension reform has term 30 days to be discussed in the Senate CCJ. In those early days, should have discussions in public hearings with the participation of representatives of workers and entrepreneurs. The expectation is that Tasso presents the report in committee on 28 of August. After assessed the CCJ matter must go through two rounds of voting in the plenary of the House for approval which would need 49 of 81 Senators vote at every turn.
