Yisrael Beytenu chairman MK Avigdor Liberman confirmed to Arutz Sheva that his faction will support the "Fabric of Life" bill that will be brought to the Knesset tomorrow for a preliminary reading.

Also known as "Regulation Law 2", the bill was approved on Sunday by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation, despite the opposition of the Attorney General's representative, Deputy Attorney General Raz Nizri.

The bill, which anchors the special status of communities in Judea and Samaria on state land, includes three main components

*Setting a time frame for the normalization of Judea and Samaria communities - the government will be required to complete the process of approving these communities within two years of the enactment of the law.

*During the interim period, the communities will be able to receive the municipal services to which every citizen is entitled - permanent connection to electricity and water, garbage disposal, maintenance of kindergartens and more. (Today, the State Comptroller prohibits local authorities, government ministries and government companies from providing municipal services to the thousands of families).

*The freezing of the existing demolition processes - until the completion of the normalization proceedings, all enforcement procedures and administrative orders will be frozen, and no actions of the Civil Administration enforcement unit will be carried out without direct instruction by the Minister of Defense / Prime Minister with the approval of the Cabinet.
