â€¢ The initiative joins the Proposal No of Law (NLP) that the PP also already presented in the Congress of Deputies, and includes claiming the 3 million euros of the investment agreement and forgiving 50% of the interest that the government Spain still requires public aid recipients to repair their homes.
â€¢ Lorca will have to pay 7.2 million on October 1 if the resistance of the central government to approve this measure persists.
The Popular Parliamentary Group in Congress will present the initiative again through a Proposal of Law.
The Speaker of the Popular Group in the City of Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, has reported that the PP has won the support of all political groups with municipal representation in the plenary session of the Consistory to demand that the central government approve urgently and immediately through the Decree-law formula the 50% bonus on the Real Estate Tax for those affected by the 2011 earthquake, as well as the transfer of 3 million euros to finance works and services of infrastructure, equipment and services of municipal ownership, and the forgiveness of 50% of the interests that are still being requested from the recipients of public assistance for the repair of their homes damaged by the earthquakes
Fulgencio Gil has affirmed that this is the big problem that we Lorca now have, what worries us all the most, and, honestly, we do not deserve the uncertainty that is causing us to suffer.
This situation has reached a point of no return, has become unsustainable and can no longer stand.
We have heard that at least 35 Law Decrees have been approved, and it seems "unpresentable" that they have not had with Lorca the sensitivity they have had for minor issues.
Those affected by the earthquakes do not deserve this mistreatment by the government of Spain, so we are going to put maximum pressure, since this is now the absolute priority for our municipality.
We will not allow them to leave us without the IBI bonus.
We are talking about a "sablazo" against those affected by the earthquakes of 7.2 million euros, a real barbarity.
About 44,000 receipts would be affected.
From the Popular Party we continue working to get the current central government to stop turning its back on those affected by the earthquakes and resolve the issues that we put on the table.
Through our parliamentary group in the Congress of Deputies we already asked you several months ago through a Proposal No of Law that articulated the necessary means to apply the IBI bonus.
The PSOE is defaulting with Lorca, has not done anything to renounce its share of the interests of aid of those affected by the earthquakes, something that we also demand through an initiative months ago, and that the Autonomous Community is promised to do and complied.
However they have not processed it, nor have they done anything.
Meanwhile, paradoxically, they have approved issues that were neither necessary nor urgent in Law Decrees of all kinds, except for Lorca.
We must underline that the dynamics of the Congress of Deputies would allow the approval of this Decree Law in the Permanent Deputation tomorrow.
Fulgencio Gil, explained that there are already 4 initiatives that have been carried out by the Popular Parliamentary Group in Congress, showing the commitment of this party to help people.
Thus, on August 21, 2018 we presented an initiative (NLP) requesting the remission of the interests of the State so that those affected by the earthquakes can justify their aid.
On October 30, 2018, we again claim through a partial amendment to the state budget project both the 50% bonus of the IBI and the extension of the agreement amounting to 3 million euros, and in February of this year we raised again an NLP for 50% of the IBI to be subsidized by earthquakes.
These are 4 legislative measures that ratify the PP's commitment in this regard.
What Lorca demands is that a Decree Law is already issued to solve these matters.
In fact if they want tomorrow they can do it.
The truth is that they have not moved a finger through Lorca, they have done nothing, neither in infrastructure, nor in matters of the earthquake.
We demand that they move token now.
