So far, it provides that Thuringia will not take on any new debts for the coming fiscal year.

According to the plans, the budget is expected to be around 12.03 billion euros - around the same level as this year.

Finance Minister Heike Taubert (SPD) even provides a total of around 171 million euros for debt repayment.

Greens do not expect a special session of the state parliament on the budget

The parliamentary special session on the budget in mid-October, suggested by the parliamentary group chairmen of Red-Red-Green, may not take place.

"It looks like this at the moment," said the leader of the Greens, Astrid Rothe-Beinlich, on Thursday in Dachwig (Gotha district).

The draft budget, which the government intends to present on October 5, will probably not be discussed until the regular state parliament session at the end of October.

The FDP and CDU insist that no further debts be taken on.

CDU parliamentary group leader Mario Voigt let it be known at a CDU state party conference that his parliamentary group would insist on adequate funding for the municipalities if they even consider approving the budget - which is by no means a foregone conclusion.
