In the Khabarovsk Territory plan to cut costs for the content of deputies

At a meeting of the regional political council, United Russia's Khabarovsk Territory proposed to cut the expenses of deputies of the regional legislative assembly for business trips and posting reports on their activities in the media. The initiative was approved by the head of the region Vyacheslav Shport.

We are talking about saving "tens of millions of rubles", these costs are one of the most costly items - explained to Kommersant the secretary of the regional political council of "United Russia" Sergei Lugovskoy.

Such measures are now very useful, since the budget expenditures of the region in 2014 increased to 114 billion rubles or by 2,9%. At the same time, revenues for the year decreased by 8% and amounted to just over 98 billion rubles. Thus, the budget of the Khabarovsk Territory in 2014 was executed with a deficit of 15,2 billion rubles, which is 13,4% of costs.

As the cycle of publications of EastRussia "The Far East - Results of 2014" reports, the expenditure policy of the regional authorities can hardly be considered rational. Basically, it has a usual character, typical for most regions of Russia, one way or another making ends meet. About 28% is spent on education from the consolidated budget, about 18% on social policy, about 12% on health care, and about 10-11% on housing and communal services. But what is striking is the fact that the Khabarovsk Territory spends a lot of funds on general government spending, i.e. for the maintenance of the state and municipal apparatus. In terms of the share of such expenses in the budget (more than 9%) and in terms of their volume, it took second place in the Far East. Moreover, in the Khabarovsk Territory, the level of salaries of officials from the regional executive authorities is more than twice the average salary in the region: no other constituent entity of the Federation in the Far East is now setting such records. The dynamics is also important: in 2014, the cost of state spending increased by 15%. There is also a relatively high level of spending on media. Their share in the budget is 0,4%; in the Far East, these expenses are second only to those in Yakutsk.
