Baden-Württemberg: Green parliamentary group leader: budget is "work in progress"

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - In view of the crisis and the increasing burden on the federal and state governments, the Greens parliamentary group leader in Baden-Württemberg, Andreas Schwarz, has defended the latest changes to the planned budget. "We have never before advised a budget that is characterized to such an extent that we do not know what is to come," Schwarz said in the state parliament on Wednesday. After the introduction of the double budget for the years 2023/2024, the autumn tax estimate was presented, and there was also an "epoch of uncertainty". This "changed some basic parameters for the budget again significantly," said Schwarz. The factions would therefore have the task of sharpening.

The budget is a "work in progress". This is by no means due to Finance Minister Danyal Bayaz (Greens), but to the challenges that the time brings with it. However, Schwarz was convinced that the green-black coalition would adopt a budget in December "that prepares Baden-Württemberg as best as possible for the next two years".

The coalition had recently announced that it would incur new debts in order to deal with the crisis next year. Because of the foreseeable worsening of the economy, the government wants to take out new loans of more than one billion euros as part of the debt brake. According to the Ministry of Finance, this should strengthen the reserve in order to be able to compensate for further tax losses. This also gives the government leeway to put together an aid package itself.
