MessageWe don't think it's fair that the government forces people to pay for services like these, they promote productivity and growth and citizens pay enough tax to expect such basic needs to be met!

ToDebating the infrastructure bill
MessageMy party would be willing to support all but Article 1. We feel it's important that services as essential as firefighting remain out of the hands of private corporations, so as to ensure adequate standards of service. May I ask the Infrastructure Minister how much money she predicts could be saved from these initiatives?

ToDebating the infrastructure bill
MessageOur party agrees with the BDGP in regards to article 1; however, we would fully endorse article 2 and welcome it being put to the vote.

We will wait to hear what the cost/benefits of Article 3 would be before making a decision on that one because at the moment we have a system where private companies operate the national main lines and public services are run on the regional branch lines.

Messagethank you congressmen and congresswomen for sharing of concerns about the infrastructure bill.
I have sought to have private players on regional basis. Having government play at the national level will ensure we standardize the railway system across the country. I have found that the ministry is incurring extra costs in running it's national services because of different systems among the private players. Like the Linder services of Linder valley use different voltage across its line. moreover they charge the public railways higher rent than the private ones. The Linder services is just an example.
We also need money to maintain competitiveness and reduce our dependency on the budget. So we are decreasing the subsidies. But we do hope we will be able to fully subsidies the transport in the near future.
regarding fire safety we want the best of baltusia to be available with us. so as the infrastructure minister I am ensuring that we maintain a high standard across baltusia.
The department is expecting to earn 500000 to 800000 bld from reducing subsidies in public transport. We hope to earn 800000 to 1500000 from subcontractors in fire safety. However initially we will spend 200000 for the national rail system. However very soon we will start earning at least 20000 from the railways. I hope the department will also get less amount from the budget.
I apologise to the Congress for the delay in reply to their concerns.
Justina Lee
Minister of infrastructure
