Kadima faction chair Dalia Itzik on Thursday submitted a bill to cancel the controversial water tax.
"It's another aggressive tax in a series of illogical taxes which the government has imposed on the Israeli public," said Itzik. "The Israeli government is continuing its battle against the middle class and weaker sections of society, and the heavy tax burdens and abuse of citizens has become the only flag it's flying."
According to the new tax, From November 1 to January 1, households of up to four people will receive 18 cubic meters of water per month and each additional person five cubic meters.
From January 1 onwards, households of up to two people will receive 12 cubic meters per month and each extra person five cubic meters. In both these cases, anyone exceeding their allotment will be charged the NIS 20 levy as well.
