In principle, the dispute over the distribution of costs of relief measures between the federal and state governments revolves. Bremen Mayor Andreas Bovenschulte (SPD) told the "Welt am Sonntag": "If the division proposed by the federal government remains, Bremen alone costs the previous three relief packages almost 300 million euros. Here the federal government has to improve significantly. "Söder said:" Centralistic and lonely decisions are made that can no longer be financed by the countries within the framework of the debt brake - while the federal government is handling in shadow households with gigantic sums ". The countries have never been treated as poorly by a federal government as today.
Saxony-Anhalt Prime Minister Reiner Haseloff (CDU) called the dealing with the federal government "irresponsible". Right now you need a permanently institutionalized coordination procedure between the federal and state governments, “similar to the Chancellor Merkel in the Corona crisis. It was always accessible. This preliminary vote does not take place today. ”
SPD and Greens demand improvements to Lindner's relief package
Berlin, Aug 15th (Reuters) - In the debate about the relief package planned by Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP), the coalition partners SPD and Greens further improve.

is already loud for further measures beyond the relief package. Lower Saxony's Prime Minister Stephan Weil (SPD) told the German Press Agency that this could not have been the last step. Now it is still a matter of help for companies that are in trouble, he said.
The head of the German Trade Union Confederation, Yasmin Fahimi, called for a different focus. "The traffic light coalition would be better advised to agree on a few, but all the more extensive measures," she told the "Welt am Sonntag". The government should also focus more on what private households and companies need in the medium term to get through the crisis over a longer period of time.
Fahimi called for a gas price lid and at short notice another energy price flat rate of 500 euros per person, plus 100 euros for each child. Further aid is necessary for recipients of social benefits, more protection for tenants in the event of payment failures.
