Many are cynical about the Knesset’s work, but few look at all the bills that they pass. Be one of the few, the proud, the Kalpi. Also make sure to check out the updated database to see all the bills passed from the last few months ranked in a completely non arbitrary manner. Without further ado…
Law to Make Oversight and Enforcement in Municipalities and Local Authorities More Efficient – 3/7/2017 – Government Bill – The bill allows for municipal overseers to give tickets to electric scooters and bikes in the same way that they can do now to bigger motor vehicles.
