MK Slomiansky: The 0% VAT Housing Law Will Pass


The Knesset Finance Committee will resume this morning (Tuesday) its deliberations and vote on the proposed 0% VAT Housing Law, which was introduced by Finance Minster Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid).

At the moment there is no consensus between the MK's of the Hareidi parties and the Labor faction to remove their 2,000 doubts and reservations about the new law. The hareidi parties intend to filibuster in order extend the deliberations and to put off a vote.
