While the controversial so-called “Regulation Bill” was to have been voted upon on Monday afternoon 3 Shevat, the vote has been pushed off to Tuesday. The bill seeks to retroactively legalize dozens of outposts and communities located throughout Yehuda and Shomron.
The second and third (final) readings of the bill are on the docket for Tuesday in Knesset. The over 200 reservations surrounding the bill led to the delay. This is the same bill that Attorney General Mandelblit warned would not withstand the challenges to the High Court of Justice or challenges to the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
Nevertheless, Bayit Yehudi remains adamant and insists moving ahead with the bill.
