Livni Law on JNF Supervision Goes Down to Defeat


After the negotiations she conducted with the Palestinian Authority fell apart several weeks ago, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni suffered another setback Sunday when a law that she had pushed that would have put the Jewish National Fund under the supervision of the State Comptroller's Office was defeated in the Ministerial Committee on Legislation. Ministers of the Likud, Jewish Home, and Yisrael Beteinu defeated the bill, which was supported by Livni, Finance Minister Ya'ir Lapid, and Health Minister Yael German.
