The Generalitat demands 56 powers from the State

  • The task force on transfers has met three months after the bilateral commission of August 2

Second stone in the normalization of relations between the State and the Generalitat, in what refers to competence and pecuniary matters. After the resumption of the meetings of the bilateral commission, on August 2, this Wednesday has been launched the working group that will address the issue of transfer of competences. At the appointment, which in principle should have been held a few weeks ago, as reported by this newspaper, in the midst of the negotiations on the amendment to the totality that ERC was going to present to the General State Budgets, the Catalan side has claimed a total of 56 transfers. The next conclave will take place before the end of the year.

Both delegations have agreed to start working on those possible transfers that were already prioritized in the appointment of August 2, that is, University scholarships, maritime rescue, health training and the execution of various competences in the field of labor legislation. A process of exchanging documentation and proposals is now beginning with the aim, for example, that the Catalan management of university grants, the competition that is closest to changing hands, can be a reality in the next course, the 22-23.

Among the 56 claims is that of the complete management of the Commuter service. In this case, sources from the Government report, the matter has been transferred to the bilateral infrastructure commission, which has to be celebrated this November; as well as to bring together the working group to assess the deficit in the exploitation of the service.
