Griffi calls for 'surgery' on fiscal federalism laws


(ANSA) - Rome, October 3 - Italy's Minister of Public
Administration says his government is considering "surgery" on
the laws giving fiscal power to regional governments.
"The government is considering surgery on Title V of the
Constitution with regard to the functions of the provinces and
local authorities," Filippo Patroni Griffi told hearings of the
House's constitutional affairs committee Wednesday.
The Italian constitution gives a great deal of legislative
and financial authority to regional governments.
Many of these bodies, however, have recently been caught up
in a string of political scandals.
Pressure has been growing 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 led to the arrest on
Monday of Franco Fiorito.
The disgraced former caucus leader of the party in the
Lazio was arrested on accusations of embezzlement and taken to
prison after judges found there was a risk he could re-offend or
tamper with evidence.
Investigators are said to looking at over 800,000 euros of
financial transactions linked to Fiorito.
Other scandals have reached the regions of Lombardy,
Campania, Puglia, and Sicily.
