      Gafni: Cheap Water for Disabled or No Free Education

      Chairman Moshe Gafni of the Knesset Finance Committee said, Monday, that he would not put budget cuts to pay for free school on the agenda unless cheaper water tariffs for the disabled.

      During a committee meeting regarding water prices, Gafni announced that there was an agreement with the Treasury to pay for the reduced water rate out of state funds. He added, "but if this is not carried out, I will not bring the across-the-board cuts up for discussion."
