Deal on ECI extensions: plans for additional flexibility approved

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 29 giugno 2020

The draft legislation will retroactively extend time limits for the collection, verification and examination phases of European Citizens’ Initiatives affected by COVID-19.Following last week’s adoption by the European Parliament of amendments containing improvements on the original Commission proposal, negotiators from the three EU institutions reached an informal agreement on Thursday afternoon, largely based on Parliament’s position.Parliament’s proposed improvements focused on lowering the thresholds required for the Commission to further extend the temporary measures if the situation remains difficult in September. The necessary threshold will be reduced from a majority of member states originally foreseen (or states representing more than 35% of the Union), to a quarter of EU countries. Another key change is the option for ECI organisers to participate remotely in hearings or meetings, if they choose to do so.After the meeting, rapporteur Loránt Vincze (EPP, RO) said: “We have concluded this process with remarkable swiftness and good cooperation, serving the interests of European citizens. In this way, we are ensuring that the most important EU mechanism for participatory democracy is protected and that ECI organisers are supported in their efforts through legal clarity and flexibility”.
The informal agreement, once endorsed by the Council, will have to be tabled at Constitutional Affairs Committee. Thereafter, the proposal is expected to become legally binding through votes in Parliament’s plenary and in the Council. Parliament aims for the process to be finalised by July. These temporary measures, once adopted, will stay in force until the end of 2022.

bombardierHa annunciato che Lease Corporation International Aviation (New Buildings) Limited ha siglato un contratto fermo per l’acquisto di tre CS100 e 17 CS300. L’acquirente, che ha acquistato anche un’opzione su altri 20 CSeries, è una controllata di Lease Corporation International Limited (LCI), società privata di leasing di aerei che possiede e affitta aerei alle principali compagnie aeree.In base ai prezzi di listino, l’ordine fermo per 20 CSeries aircraft è stimato a circa 1,44 miliardi di dollari americani. “This firm order for both CS100 and CS300 aircraft adds to the momentum we anticipated for CSeries aircraft following the initial firm order by Deutsche Lufthansa AG. Moreover, LCI’s purchase confirms the flexibility designed into this technologically advanced aircraft family as required by all our customers, but especially leasing companies,” said Gary R. Scott, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “We are grateful for LCI’s confidence in the CSeries aircraft and delighted to welcome them as the launch leasing company customer. We look forward to working with them on further development of the aircraft for its entry into service in 2013.” The 110-seat and 130-seat CSeries family of aircraft brings u nmatched passenger comfort, performance, and operating economics, benefiting from the latest technological advancements, including: fourth-generation aerodynamics; increased use of composites and advanced aluminium alloy in structures; the very latest in system technologies, such as fly-by-wire, electric brakes, and a next-generation engine – the Pratt & Whitney PurePower(TM) PW1000G engine. PurePower(TM) represents a significant breakthrough in turbofan technology, especially on the environmental front where it will set new benchmarks from dramatically reduced fuel burn, noise, and emissions. In addition to Bombardier’s fourth-generation transonic composite wing design, the company is also using its Reconfigurable Engineering Flight Simulator II (REFS II) to develop customized ‘fly-by-wire’ control laws specific to CSeries aircraft. This simulator is the first of many devices planned, as part of an extensive integrated test regime, to ensure the CSeries aircraft achieves consistently high levels of reliability when it enters service.
