Budget goes to Congress

The Executive Branch is expected to send its 2007 RD$254 billion budget proposal to Congress for approval today, with the request that the budget be approved. The Technical Minister to the Presidency will deliver the proposal to Congress. If the proposal is not approved by this weekend it will have to wait for approval in the New Year, but El Caribe newspaper reports that it is expected to be approved before 1 January 2007.
