Come-back of gambling business must be approved by the society, according to the Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada

The draft law on the legalization of gambling business must go through public hearings, according to the deputy chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Oksana Syroyid.

She believes that the government should organize a public discussion on this issue, and parliamentary committees are responsible for the provision of a guarantee that the discussion participants have reached a consensus.

Oksana Syroyid has reported that in the near future the MPs are not going to consider the draft law on gambling business unshadowing as the MPs are more concerned about the amendments to the state budget.

We recall that in December last year, the Ministry of Finance submitted to the Verkhovna Rada a draft law on the legalization of gambling. Moreover, revenues from this sector were even included in the budget of 2016. However, the document was excluded from the list of urgent issues and relevant revenue items were removed from the state budget.
