cemented the political unanimity on the need to stop the millionaire deficit of the Santa Fe Retirement Fund, the ruling party in the provincial Chamber of Deputies hopes to approve the project in the first half of June, with half the approval of the Senate, which gives the green light to the commission that will design a pension reform.

The body’s deficit amounts to about 23,000 million pesos per month that the provincial Treasury must face to comply with the payment of salaries, without proper assistance from the national government, beyond the fact that the Gray House maintains the corresponding claim.
