Parliament in end of term rush; 36 bills hang in balance ({{commentsTotal}})


Parliament is planning on voting on 36 bills this week, the last work week before national elections on March 1.

The total number of motions under discussion is 112, although most will be left to the new watch.

The most notable bills during the final push will be the decision to send 50 Estonian troops to Lebanon as part of a UN mission and a bill on the state's policy on sports until 2030 is also on the table.

The 12th Parliament first convened on April 4, 2011 and has held 476 sittings so far. When it finishes its term next week, it is expected to have voted on 768 bills.
