House of Representatives concludes discussions on PM for highway concessions and closes session

The House of Representatives concluded the analysis of Provisional Measure 800/17, which authorizes the National Ground Transportation Agency (ANTT) to celebrate a contractual amendment with federal highway concessionaires to extend the period of execution of originally planned investments.

Such postponement of investments may occur only once in common agreement with the concessionaire. The maximum term for the reprogramming will be of up to 14 years, conditioned on the demonstration of the economic-financial sustainability of the concession.

The reprogramming will lead to the suspension of obligations regarding investments and the imposition of fines.

Obstruction

The opposition obstructed the work during the whole of the two special sessions on Tuesday (6) in protest of the government’s intention to lead the reform of Social Security.
