Bill prohibiting cutting off basic supplies during state of crisis is approved

The Chamber of Deputies approved and sent to the Senate a bill that prohibits the cut or suspension of basic services, while the state of crisis is extended due to Covid-19. The bill establishes the possibility of prorating basic service accounts that cannot be paid during the state of crisis in up to 12 subsequent, interest-free payments. It also establishes fines for companies that fail to comply with the prohibition on suspending services for months that cannot be paid during the state of crisis.
