Brazil – Senator Fernando Bezerra Coelho (MDB-PE), a PEC rapporteur introducing a state of emergency to expand existing aid and create new benefits to mitigate the effects of rising fuel prices, confirmed that the vote for this Thursday (30) in Senate. The broadcast of the debate is taking place live at this time.


What is PEC about?

With the recognition of the state of emergency for the creation of “truck vouchers” – a benefit of 1000 reais per month for autonomous freight carriers (TAC) – and the extension of Auxílio Brasil and Auxílio Gás, the new PEC text abandons the idea of ​​compensating States that have decided to reduce and fuel tax exemption. The text also approves an increase from 200 reais in Auxílio Brasil to 600 reais and provides for a fee to settle the tip of the elderly in urban and urban public transport.

What do you need to get approval?

According to the rules, the PEC should collect three-fifths of the votes, corresponding to the number of 49 senators, in two rounds of voting, in order to be approved, so it is a condition for a high quorum. Nevertheless, once the PEC is voted on, the PEC is likely to get positive votes from a majority of parliamentarians, given the proximity of elections and the political weight of positioning against a proposal granting aid to the most vulnerable facing rising fuel prices. .


In the case of Auxílio Gása, the amount in cash will be equivalent to 1 bottle of gas per bimetre, not more than half a bottle. According to the rapporteur, the extension of existing benefits has favorable case law in the electoral judiciary, while the creation of vouchers would be supported by the recognition of a state of emergency. He rejected that the PIK has an electoral nature and said that the presented text guarantees that the effects of the proposal will be limited to certain values, denying that it consists of “open doors” for other costs.
