The first round of voting on the Precatórios PEC was approved in the House, Sen. Antonio Anastasia’s appointment to the TCU was approved, and the Senate may vote on the edits to the bill providing for tax exemptions when purchasing vehicles

Two edits submitted by the PT to the Precatórios PEC were rejected. Three more edits need to be analyzed – one from the PT and PSOL, one from the Novo and another from the DEM.
