The cabinet for social and economic affairs, a body under the auspices of the Finance Ministry and comprised of members of Knesset, will meet today (Wednesday) to discuss various pieces of the state budget, including the standardization of "green" agriculture, the streamlining of municipal services and guaranteed pension payments to retired workers.
Today's discussions are a result of a desire from within the Finance Ministry to allocate more funds towards certain areas covered by the state budget. The cabinet is expected to decide on the budget in the middle of August and it will then be sent to the Knesset for final approval.
