"

The president of the PP has said that "Zapatero has not accepted the proposal of the municipalities to allocate one third of the resources of E Plan next year to pay suppliers, which would have been a great relief not only to the consistory, but also for small and independent business community. "
It has also urged the Socialists totaneros to "not give us lessons of funding for municipalities and work to convince the Prime Minister to address definitively the reform of the Local Finance System."
In addition, he noted that "Zapatero will reduce 2010 funding for municipalities by lowering financing through the PGE nothing less than a 18.2% cut is added to the already suffered last year by E Plan from 8,000 to 5,000 million euros, 37.5% less. "
"In total, between PGE and Plan E, the municipalities will go from 22,500 million euros in 2009 (14,500 million via funding + 8,000 million E Plan) in 2010 to 16.887 million (11.887 million financing + 5,000 million Plan E), "he adds.
