(ANSA) - Rome, September 27 - The governors of Italy's
regions on Thursday submitted a list of proposed cuts that the
government should impose in response to a string of scandals.
The proposals include lowering salaries for regional
councilors, assessors and governors.
They also proposed reducing the number of regional
councilors and cutting spending for special groups and
commissions.
Pressure has mounted both nationally and internationally on
the regions to impose stricter checks on corruption in politics
since the center-right People of Freedom (PdL) party, headed by
former premier Silvio Berlusconi, was hit by a scandal that
forced its governor in Lazio, the region around Rome, to quit
this week.
Other scandals have reached Lombardy, Campania, Puglia and
Sicily.
