After four days of blockade, the pressure measures in Tarija are lifted because of the conflict over the Resource Allocation Act.
“We will propose a new law in which both apply,” said the governor of the department of Tarija, Oscar Montes, in an interview with Red Uno.
The Tarijean Congregation will work on a new rule by January 10th
The conflict began on December 18, when the government of Tarija and the legislative assembly of the department enacted Law 443, which provides for the allocation of 1% of the department’s resources to the mayors, but without automatic debiting. This standard replaces Law 206, which was enacted in the previous administration.
The rural sectors and some mayors rejected the 1% law and are calling for the previous regulations to be reinstated.
