Rome, December 19 - The House passed the so-called
''ILVA decree'' by an overwhelming majority on Wednesday.
The government decree will now go to the senate.
The legal measure aims to save Italy's largest steelworks
by outlining the conditions - including badly needed clean-up
measures - under which ILVA's embattled steel plant in the
southern port city of Taranto can continue to operate, despite
court injunctions and legal proceedings regarding the alleged
deadly impact of the plant's emissions.
The bill enabled Italy's troubled technical government,
which has been shaken this month by ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's political maneuvers, to shore up its majority for
the time being.
The ''ILVA decree'' passed the Chamber with 421 ''yes''
votes, 21 ''no'' votes and 49 abstentions.
The decree is one of two pieces of legislation the
technical government seeks to pass into law before stepping down
to make way for early elections. The other is the so-called
''Stability Law'', which contains the 2013 budget and a new
series of financial reforms.
