The state Duma has changed the schedule of plenary meetings

MOSCOW, July 27. /TASS/. The state Duma at the last meeting in the spring session adopted amendments to its rules about change of the schedule “pleneros”.

Since September the planned meetings will be held not twice, but three times a week – on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. This reduces the time for plenary work: deputies will now meet continuously from 10:00 to 14:00 and not from 10:00 to 18:00 with two breaks.

“Governmental hour” will be scheduled on Wednesdays, first and third weeks of plenary meetings of the month from 10:00 to 12:00 and to work in committees and commissions are assigned Monday and Friday.

As explained by the speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin, such order will allow to optimize the work of the lower chamber.
