F i r s t  reading bills taken

 

On communal housing: Draft bill No.7304

The bill aims to amend the law on housing facilities used for social needs (communal housing) so as to refine requirements to social (public) housing which should additionally qualify building specifications, standards and rules for accessibility by people with limited mobility.

The draft bill also provides that internally displaced persons with disabilities and their family members enjoy the right to be put to a social housing registry, if they have not housing in the Ukraine-controlled territories, or their housing was destroyed or became unfit for residence as a result of the antiterrorist operation.

The draft bill also stipulates that children with disabilities and persons with disabilities of I and II categories registered as internally displaced persons have the right to first receive apartments or manor (mansion) houses (one-family houses) from communal housing facilities.

On interdiction of palm oil use: Draft bill No.3871

The bill is to amend a whole cluster of food laws in order to establish administrative responsibility for production and/or selling foodstuffs with palm oil, as well as for use of this oil in traditional dairy products made in Ukraine.

On strengthening social protection of caregivers for sick children: Draft bill No.8294

The bill extends compulsory state pension insurance for one of the welfare able-bodied parents, adoptive persons, guardians, custodians who de facto provide care for a critically ill child or a child with a severe injury, one seeking for transplantation or palliative care. At the same time, the said care period will be counted into the insurance record, which gives the right to pension, as well as to the service record which gives the right to an annual leave.

The bill’s amendments shall be introduced into a whole cluster of labour and pension laws.

On tax exempt for alimony from non-residents: Draft bill No.8295

The bill proposes to abolish a personal income tax for alimony payable to a taxpayer by a non-resident and to extend a list of spending allowable for tax rebate (e.g. educational outgoings of different nature). The appropriate changes are proposed to be introduced into the Tax Code of Ukraine.

On greater protection of child’s right to due care: Draft bill No.8296

Taken on the first reading was there the bill that provides for creating economic pre-conditions for strengthening protection of child’s right to a due care.

The draft law offers refinement of legal procedures providing a good living standard and material support for children in case of parental discord towards ways of supplying the children and provided these ways are subject to a court decision.

The proposed bill’s changes to the Family Code of Ukraine run that once a parent is in arrears of alimony exceeding a three-month amount of payments due, another parent whom a critically ill or disabled child has been set to live with judicially is allowed without the behind-hander’s (parent-obligor) consent to temporarily take the child beyond Ukraine for medical, educational or recreational purposes.

Besides, there is no second parent’s consent needed once a child leaves Ukraine for a period not exceeding one month being escorted by the parent whom the child lives with by a court decision.

The bill also proposes to increase liability for non-payment of alimony, extends the appeal period and the period during which alimony may be charged. The draft law cuts a total amount of alimony arrears down to three months for adjudgement of socially useful works.

The bill sets yet more alimony restrictions for persons willing to take a situation as a civil servant (categories A and B) or a minister or its deputy, or purporting to run for Parliament or locally.
