Budget 2022: the Assembly gives a last green light to an anti-inflation extension

2022-11-23T18:07:28.988Z

The energy check “will be paid by the end of the year”, he underlined, with reference to one of the key measures of the text, aid of 100 to 200 euros which can concern 12 million households.



The Assembly gave its final agreement on Wednesday to a rectified budget for 2022 with an anti-inflation budget extension of 2.5 billion euros, in particular to finance an energy check for 12 million households.

The text was adopted by a large majority (187 votes against 60), without the government having to engage its responsibility by article 49.3 of the Constitution, as it did for the 2023 budgets of the State and Social Security, currently under review.

Apart from the Communists, who voted against, the left-wing political groups members of the Nupes abstained, as did the LR deputies.

RN deputies voted against.

Curbing Inflation

For the adoption of this amending budget 2022 to be final, the Senate will in turn have to validate, on Friday, the agreement reached between deputies and senators in the joint joint committee (CMP) on this text.

Among the other measures are support for universities for their energy bills and for the armies, and a regularization of the financing of the extension of the rebate of 30 centimes per liter at the pump until mid-November.

Apparently our assembly is quite capable of going to the end of a budgetary text

”, tackled the LFI president of the Finance Committee Éric Coquerel, judging that “

the contrast is all the more shocking

” with the debates on budgets for 2023 that the government has cut short by 49.3.

The compromises that we have found must be a lesson for the government

”, also underlined the PS deputy Mickaël Bouloux.

Véronique Louwagie (LR) also welcomed certain measures, but reiterated her criticism of “

insufficient

” control of expenditure.

RN Alexandre Sabatou deplored a “

disappointing

” budget and mocked the “

small victories

” of the oppositions, whose government accepted several amendments during parliamentary debates.

This is for example an aid of 230 million euros, added by the deputies for households heating with wood.

Aid, also offered by the Socialists, has been added for associations providing food aid.

On a proposal from LR, additional credits have been granted for the "

MaPrimeRénov'

" thermal renovation aid scheme.

Extensions have also been introduced by senators in favor of communities, in particular for the repair of bridges and roads, for a total of 100 million euros.
