Düsseldorf (dpa / lnw) - For the Germany ticket, NRW is planning 560 million euros in the budget for the coming year, to cushion additional burdens on housing benefit recipients 836 million. Half of the money should come from the federal government, as the Ministry of Finance announced in Düsseldorf on Tuesday. The state government had previously decided to supplement the draft budget for 2023 accordingly.
The budget for the coming year now has a volume of 104.7 billion euros. The state parliament still has to vote on it. All planned measures could be implemented, explained Minister Marcus Optendrenk (CDU). "We are using all available options to do this and are dissolving existing reserves." No new debt should be taken on. On the other hand, money from the remaining stock of the Corona rescue package is offset.
