Medvedev surprised “extraordinary lightness” changes in Russian laws

Moscow. 15 Feb. INTERFAX.RU — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that he was surprised at the “extraordinary lightness”, which in Russia changes in the legislation.

At the meeting with the Council chamber of the Federation Council he stated that the procedure for changing the laws “should be more conservative” and urged senators to help make Russian legislation more stable.

At the meeting with Medvedev, Federation Council speaker Valentina Matviyenko asked the Prime Minister to support the proposal of Council that amendments to the code were made not more than once per parliamentary session.

There is another problem, she said: often, at the stage of second reading to the bill being amended, changing their concept and essence, but also the object of reference and sometimes in scope.

“In addition, the amendments to the second reading are not, and due to haste, and due to the imperfections of the adoption of the laws necessary for harmonization. The result will be mistakes, inaccuracies, which we then followed the adoption of the law are compelled to correct”, — said the speaker.
