The Spanish Council of Ministers has established two Expert Commissions to review the models of funding the autonomous regions and local funding. The objective is to boost the updating process of the current funding systems.
Santiago Lago Peñas, director of the GEN Research Group, has been named member of the Expert Commission that will review the autonomous funding model. He has been named by the Galician government as their representative in the matter.
The mission of both Expert Commissions will be to review and analyse both systems. Moreover, they will have the task to design two new models which should be based on the principles of solidarity, sufficiency, equity, transparency, fiscal responsibility and the guarantee of access to public services.
