TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates


Berlin (dpa) - In the dispute between the federal government and the states over money for the planned digitization of the law and a change in the Basic Law a compromise is palpable. According to information from negotiating circles, federal funds should be more clearly limited than previously planned to the improvement of the municipal educational infrastructure. In addition, no future co-financing of countries with a fixed rate is planned for future federal programs in favor of the federal states, the German Press Agency learned. The Conciliation Committee is due to meet again on 20 February.
