Consorzi di Bonifica in Calabria, here are the three “cornerstones” of the reform


By John

There are three points of the land reclamation reform on which the regional government is adamant, articulated on Monday evening in commission by councilor Gallo: a single consortium, the liquidation of the current 11 and the obligation that farmers must be in compliance with the payment of contributions to receive the benefits. Out of these three “cornerstones” there is no amendment or modification in the courtroom that takes: iGovernor Occhiuto has already formally placed the trustwhich means that each proposal will have to go through its evaluation.
The architecture of the reform cannot be touched: the majority is aware of this, from which the president of the Region expects a clear and strong response. The board meeting is set for tomorrow, the last – barring unforeseen circumstances – before the summer break. At Palazzo Campanella the full stability of the center-right will take place. In this sense, yesterday, the regional commissioner of the League, Giacomo Francesco Sacomanno, tried to express a clear position: «Certainly the proposal is not perfect, but with everyone’s collaboration and sharing, without any mental reservations, it can be modified, integrated and improved, while eliminating waste and inefficiencies. For these reasons and due to the need for a change of pace, the League will vote for the trust and will, however, supervise the correct application of the rule for the achievement of the results it envisages and which are fundamental for the supply of efficient and fundamental services for the farmers”. However, the regional councilor of the Carroccio Santo Molinaro, former historic president of Coldiretti, thinks a little differently, who expressed strong perplexity about the text in the commission, judging it “a historical falsehood” to represent the consortia “as bankruptcy in all respects” and declaring himself “partially dissatisfied” with the report by councilor Gallo. «I’m not against the idea of ​​a reform – concluded Molinaro – but I remain convinced that it should start from broader foundations. A law of such importance cannot have such a large front of dissent from the subjects involved, who do not understand why choices of this type and with such attitudes are imposed. A good page of Calabrian politics is not being written ».
