Growth Decree: Ok from Parliament

26 July 2012

Yesterday evening, the Italian Chamber of Deputies approved the "Growth Decree" (382 votes in favour and 68 against. 454 deputies were present, 450 voted and 226 votes were required for a majority). The regulation will now pass to the Senate. Among other things, the text extends the energy bonus until 30 June 2013 and confirms the tax deduction percentage of 55% (until a few days ago it was assumed that the tax deduction percentage would be lowered to 50%).
