Castro’s measures go beyond those required by the Union to sign the regime, such as a social security reform and the creation of a spending ceiling that could affect public services for the population of Rio de Janeiro.
In the session last Tuesday (21) at Alerj, the president of the House, Deputy André Ceciliano (PT), stated that the RRF, as it stands, “wants the end of public service”.
