Chamber of Deputies approves suspending cut-off of basic services

The Chamber of Deputies approved the report issued by the mixed commission, which prohibits the cut-off basic services for non-payment while the pandemic continues. The initiative was endorsed by 138 in favor, zero against and 13 abstentions, and must now be voted on in the Senate Chamber. If approved, the bill will become law. This proposal prevents companies that provide drinking water, sewage, electricity, gas and telephone services from suspending supplies due to non-payment.
