IBA Closure Bill to Come Up for Second and Third Readings


The bill proposing that the IBA (Israel Broadcasting Authority) be closed and then opened as a new authority will be coming up for its second and third readings before the Knesset today (Tuesday).

The special Ministerial Legislative Committee approved yesterday amendments to two paragraphs after an agreement had been arrived at between the Ministry of Finance, the Histadrut (national labor federation), and Knesset members. The amended paragraphs dealt with issues of employee salaries and termination of administrators.
