      Same Gender Tax Breaks Proposal Compromise Reached

      The Jewish Home and Yesh Atid have reached a compromise on the MK Adi Kol proposal for tax breaks to be administered to same-gender couples. It was agreed to bring the proposal before the Knesset Plenum and let it is pass initially, only to be immediately archived and disregarded before completion of the legislation process. Economy Minister Naftali Bennett told Israel Army Radio, "Finally we can stop arguing and get back to improving the financial situation of the citizens of Israel."
