Federal deputy Luís Miranda (DEM-DF) presented, in the ambit of the Finance and Taxation Committee of the Chamber of Deputies, a favorable opinion to Bill 143/2019, which proposes that the resources destined to INPI (National Institute of Intellectual Property) are not subject to expense limitation. For the deputy, reporter of the matter, the INPI “in addition to dealing with a significant portion of funds directly collected, cannot be left to the taste of the financial conveniences of the federal government. The country’s future imposes an independence between that body and the budget fluctuations that are always present in our country ”.
In his rapporteurship, the deputy proposes “for the non-financial or budgetary implication of the matter in increasing or decreasing public revenue and expenditure, not being able to pronounce on the financial or budgetary adequacy and, in merit, for the approval of the Complementary Law Project nº 143 2019 ”. The rapporteur’s opinion will also be considered by the Finance and Taxation Committee of the Chamber of Deputies, the Constitution and Justice and Citizenship Commission and, subsequently, the House Plenary. The financial autonomy of the INPI is an old banner of ABPI. More information about PL 143/2019.
