The Knesset Finance Committee's passage of the NIS 2 billion in budget cuts needed to finance the war in Lebanon appeared to have a majority on Wednesday night after Labor chairman Amir Peretz succeeding at quelling a rebellion in his party.
The committee will meet at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds on Thursday for a third attempt at passing the cuts.
