Measures to pass an alternative to the Tal Law on haredi (ultra-Orthodox) enlistment in the military fell short Monday, amid actions from the Shas party and the advancement of a bill to dissolve the Knesset.

Earlier in the day, The Ministerial Committee for Legislation cleared proposals for alternatives to the "Tal Law" from the Yisrael Beytenu and Independence parties, allowing them to advance in the Knesset before it dissolves this week.

This bills' passage is the first hurdle in an accelerated legislative process that would allow the bills to be discussed in their first readings on Monday.
