Today’s enactments in few

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

The Verkhovna Rada has passed today the following draft bills/resolutions to presently emerge as full-blown pieces of legislation:

 

Bill No.3157: First reading - “On amendments to the Law of Ukraine ‘On the status of a Ukrainian parliamentary’ (as for parliamentary motions)”.

The purpose of the bill is to expand the scope of exercising the right of a parliamentary to appeal (including electronically) to public authorities, local governments, enterprises, institutions and organizations regardless of ownership type. To improve and streamline the handling of motions, there have been made provisions for the following tools:

-     motions may either be posted or sent electronically as prescribed by law;

-     both hard copy and electronic versions of the response to a parliamentary motion are to be sent back on the same date;

-     only an e-response to a motion may be sent back if so agreed by the sender-MP in writing within the time limits set by law;

-     the respondents are bound by law to deliver a well-grounded and adequate answer against issues set out in the motion;

-     a three-day prior notice rule is to be now applied by the respondents (officials in charge of answering) when notifying the requester of date and place of considering the motion.

These changes will be introduced into Article 16 of the Law of Ukraine “On the status of a Ukrainian parliamentary”.

 

Bill No.2588: First reading - “On amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine as to ensuring the activity of college museums”.

The law aims to consolidate the status of museums within higher education institutions (aka colleges), to protect their staffs’ rights and create cleared conditions for proper preserving museum collections and developing museum affairs in general, as well as to harmonize the terms of law.  

 

Bill No.2013: First reading – “On amendments to the Law of Ukraine 'On the organizational and legal framework for social protection of orphans and children deprived of parental care' (concerning higher bursary and annual financial aid)”.

The bill alters Article 8 of the above law and places a higher bursary (150 per cent of subsistence wage per person) and annual financial aid for the above categories of recipients, along with other on-the-job training and apprenticeship benefits. Size and order of such payments are to be clarified by the ministers. Those of the recipients who acquire knowledge are entitled throughout their education to an annual financial aid amounting to a threefold monthly social stipend established for them.

 

Bill No.0037: Second reading – “On the ratification of the Readmission Agreement between Ukraine and the Republic of Belarus”.

The bill signed on October 26, 2018 in Gomel has been finally ratified by the parliament. The treaty shall enter into force thirty (30) calendar days after the Parties have notified each other through diplomatic channels that their respective internal procedures necessary for its entry into force have been completed.

 

Bill No.0035: Second reading - “On the accession of Ukraine to the Additional Protocol to the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (CMR) concerning the Electronic Consignment Note”.

The parliament has finally ratified (with some minor reservations) the instrument executed on February 20, 2008 in Geneva. The treaty becomes effective ninety (90) days after Ukraine has deposited the instrument of accession.

 

Bill No.2696: First reading - “On amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine as to the use of light-reflecting elements by road users”.

The bill will hold pedestrians liable for utilizing these elements when it’s dark and heighten liability for the respective violations. Appropriate changes will be made to the Law of Ukraine “On road traffic” and the Administrative Offences Code of Ukraine.

 

Bill No.2697: First reading – “On amendments to Article 127 of the Administrative Offences Code of Ukraine as for harsher liability of pedestrians for traffic offences”.

The bill aims to change the code and establish stronger liability for pedestrians for committing traffic offences.

 

Bill No.2450: First reading - “On amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine as to the right of individuals to change their patronymics”.

Through appropriate changes to be made to Ukraine’s civil and family codes, the bill will allow an individual to freely and from his or her own knowledge change his or her first name, family name and patronymic provided this person has attained age 16.

If an individual (child) completed 14, his or her first name, family name and/or patronymic may be changed with the consent of the parents or of one parent, if the second parent has died, is missing or has been declared dead or with limited or without legal capacity, or has been deprived of parental rights regarding the child; if information on the father or mother has been excluded from the child’s birth record; or if information on the husband as the child’s father has been entered in that record on the basis of a statement by the mother; - or if this individual (child) is in care, the above changes may be executed with the consent of his or her guardian (tutor).

 

Bill No.2228: First reading – “On amendments to Article 15 of the Law of Ukraine ‘On access to public information’ (as for a shorter promulgation term for draft regulations, decisions of local governments)”.
