Brazilian Congress Votes on ‘Good Measure’ Today

Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies will hold a plenary session today for a final vote on the so-called “Good MP” – “MP do Bem” – a temporary measure (MP, medida provisória).

The document, drawn up by the executive branch, reduces taxes in various segments of the economy. Before the vote, the deputies will have to deal with eight riders attached to the bill.


The proposal had already been approved August 23 by a lower house committee.


The Chamber will also vote on a bill to change an MP (on the Escola de Fábrica – School Factory – project) from an MP into a law and provide students in the University for All Program (ProUni) with scholarships.
