Bulgarian MPs Vote with an Absolute Majority Against Administrative Weight

Without a debate and with an absolute majority the MPs of the Bulgarian parliament voted against administrative weight. The new changes will now make it unnecessary for workers to personally go through administrative procedures for the acquiring of documents that they can directly receive from their employers.

MPs believe that most of the documents an individual need can be acquired easily through communication between different institutions. The MPs also voted against the need of conviction status certificates individually acquired by the workers at a company. Instead, the companies will be able to acquire all of the certificates at once, making the routine visit to the court obsolete.

But administrative weight was not the only thing that got voted on today. MPs voted for new measures against people who extract underground resources (such as coal) without a concession. The new rule states that a person can be put in jail for up to 6 years and be charged with a fine of up to 20,000 BGN(10k Euro).
