Parliamentary budget committee tables extra budget bill for review

All Headlines 14:30 July 10, 2017

SEOUL, July 10 (Yonhap) -- The parliamentary budget committee on Monday tabled a 11.2 trillion-won (US$9.74 billion) extra budget bill for a long-delayed review despite opposition parties' objections.

Ruling Democratic Party members pressed ahead with the submission of the bill, aimed mainly at creating jobs in the public sector, while the main opposition Liberty Korea Party, People's Party and Bareun Party refused to attend the committee session.

The submission of the bill, which the government sent to parliament more than a month ago, has been delayed amid a political standoff over the bill's legality and President Moon Jae-in's controversial personnel appointments.
