The examination of the DDL Delegation for tax reform, which has entered the heart of the parliamentary debate, is a matter of course. the opportunity to reserve a fundamental role for the revision of taxation; of the car, as envisaged by the amendments proposed by UNRAE and presented by various deputies of the Finance Committee of the Chamber, whom we thank for having shared the urgency and opportunity, strongly hoping for a rapid and full approval.

The deadline for the presentation of projects for the construction of public charging stations by operators expires on 9 June. an opportunity not to be missed, times are very tight, there are only 8 days left for the presentation of the projects and after their approval and the granting of funding, they will have to be completed in just 12 months.
