The Radio-TV fee

CCR  On December 14th the Constitutional Court in Romania is to analyse a notification from president Klaus Iohannis on the law under which over 100 non-fiscal taxes & duties, including the radio-TV fee, are being slashed. The president challenged the law at the Constitutional Court on Tuesday because the move has a serious  budget impact, it didn’t follow the natural stages of public debates,  didn’t get government approval and had no funding sources specified. The Social Democrats, initiators of the law, say the president’s move is politically motivated. The National Liberal Party has agreed with the elimination of these taxes but supports the idea of keeping the Environment Fee and the Radio-TV fee.
