Coalition reaches compromise to appease Meretz on budget – TV – The Times of Israel

The coalition has resolved disagreements over parts of the state budget Arrangements Bill, clearing the way for its approval in its first parliamentary reading tonight, Channel 12 reports.
The network says that a compromise has been reached over the dispute between the left-wing Meretz party and Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina over a regulatory reform that is included in the Arrangements Bill.
Meretz, a coalition member, has expressed concern that the reform, meant to streamline bureaucracy, will benefit business and industry at the cost of public health and the environment.
