The Constitution Commission of Congress, chaired by Hernando Guerra García Popular Force), will analyze this Tuesday a prediction for the creation of the Office of Economic Studies and Regulatory Impact. The text contemplates the hiring of new personnel, in addition to the technical and advisory teams that legislators and commissions currently have.
The proposal arises from four bills presented by Carlos Anderson (not grouped), Arturo Alegría (People’s Force), Alejandro Cavero (Avanza País) and a commission created to analyze the legislative system, chaired by adriana tudela.
The new one Office of Economic Studies and Regulatory Impact It would be in charge of analyzing the cost benefit of the draft opinions prepared by the commissions.
The proposal to be debated today specifies that all opinions must go through this new office, before being debated in plenary. However, the same text contemplates the option of circumventing this step, through the waiver by agreement of the Board of Spokespersons.
The text that Hernando Guerra will support also specifies that Congress will hire more personnel; that is, a head of the new office and new staff, which cannot be less than module 1 of an ordinary commission (that is, at least five additional people).
During the analysis of these legislative initiatives, there was broad support for the need to create the aforementioned office, under the logic of strengthening and improving the legislative quality of the Congress of the Republic.
But in the debates, nobody noticed that currently each congressman already has a team of advisers. Fernando Guerra, for example, has at its disposal a group of 7 workers, including technicians and advisors, demanding a monthly budget greater than 40 thousand soles. Additionally, each ordinary committee that issues opinions has personnel who could carry out a better analysis of the texts they approve.
The proposal could be approved this Tuesday in the Constitution group to be later ratified in the plenary session of Congress.
