The Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee approved, Monday, a bill to give students in pre-military schools and National Service volunteers an exemption from Bituach Leumi (National Insurance Institute) payments until the age of 21, as long as they stay in those programs.

The bill now goes to the Knesset for votes on its second and third readings. If approved, the exemption will be retroactive to September 1st.
