For the allowance for large families, the Isee ceiling is up to 40,000. Messina bridge priority work. The news in the draft

“Starting from 1 January 2023 for each child under the age of one, the amounts referred to in the first four periods of this paragraph, as revalued pursuant to paragraph 11, are increased by fifty per cent; this increase is also recognized for households with three or more children for each child aged between one and three years, for ISEE levels up to 40,000 euros”. This is what is foreseen in article 65 of a new draft of the maneuver. In the previous draft of the provision, the measure was not detailed.

As a result of the provisions of paragraphs 1 and 2 and taking into account the results emerging from the monitoring activity relating to the year 2022 and the consequent updates of trends also in prospective terms, the financial resources recorded in the financial statements pursuant to article 6, paragraph 8, of the legislative decree 29 December 2021, n. 230, reads the draft of the provision, “they increased by 345.2 million euros for the year 2023, 457.9 million euros for the year 2024, 473.1 million euros for the year 2025, 480 3 million euros for the year 2026, 483.3 million euros for the year 2027, 486.3 million euros for the year 2028 and 489.2 million euros annually starting from the year 2029”.

BRIDGE ON THE STRAIT – Then there is also the bridge over the Strait of Messina and the new company in the new draft of the manoeuvre: in article 82 entitled “stable road and rail connection between Sicily and the continent” it states in particular that “in order to support the development programs and capital strengthening of the company, Rfi and Anas are authorised, in proportion to the shareholding, to subscribe to capital increases or various instruments, in any case suitable for capital strengthening, also in the form of shareholder financing for capital increases , up to a total amount not exceeding 50,000,000 euros”. The resources authorized by article 202, paragraph 1, of the legislative decree of 18 April 2016, n. 50, registered in the estimates of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, “are transferred to the Società Rete Ferroviaria Italiana and to the Anas Company, in proportion to the relative shareholdings in the same company”.

But not only. The article, which was not included in the previous draft, explains that “in order to relaunch the country’s economy through the completion of the primary infrastructure network and contribute to the objectives of the European Union relating to the trans-European transport network, the connection building, road and rail between Sicily and the continent and connected works is a priority work and of pre-eminent national interest”. From the date of entry into force of this law and until the end “the pending civil proceedings with the general contractor and the other subjects entrusted with the services connected to the construction of the work are suspended”. Within 30 days from the date of entry into force of this law, it is underlined in the new draft of the provision, “the Stretto di Messina Company, hereinafter the Company, signs the complete waiver of the dispute in relation to the proceedings established and pending at the date of entry into force of this law between the Company, and the Public Administrations, to complete silence of all rights and claims Within 90 days from the date of entry into force of this law, the Company is authorized to sign with the Administrations concerned, the contractor general, the other subjects entrusted with the services connected to the execution of the work and all the parties involved in the pending judgments settlement deeds of reciprocal full waiver of the actions and acts of the same judgments, definitive and complete acknowledgment of all rights and claims, as well as to further reciprocal claims that can be enforced in the future in relation to the contracts signed”.

The liquidator, underlined in the draft of the measure, “remains in office as extraordinary Commissioner of the Government for the ordinary management of the Company pending the appointment of the corporate bodies pursuant to paragraph 7, first period. To this end, the Commissioner overtime makes use of the Company’s resources and personnel”. Within thirty days from the date of entry into force of the decree referred to in paragraph 5, we read again, “the shareholders’ meeting of the company is convened to proceed, pursuant to article 2364 of the civil code, with the appointment of the corporate bodies. The Extraordinary Commissioner referred to in paragraph 5 lapses from the appointment of the corporate bodies”.

MATERNITY LEAVE’ – Parental leave “for working mothers” is increased by one month “until the child’s sixth year of life, to the extent of 80 per cent of wages”, the law states. In the previous draft the content of the measure was not there.

This is what can be read in a new draft of the manoeuvre. These resources are distributed on the basis of the criteria established “taking into account, for the compensations relating to the year 2021, the contributions already assigned as an advance and ensuring a uniform percentage compensation to the subjects envisaged therein”.

The program contract between the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and Rete Ferroviaria Italiana spa, it continues, “indicates the funding for the works separately”. The contributions of the European Union paid to Rfi in relation to the same interventions “are finalized within the context of the program contract in force between the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and the same company”.
