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.
