At the end of an 8-hour discussion, the Knesset Finance Committee approved the new regulations for water disconnections in Israel. The new policies will take effect on March 31st, 2015. The Chair of the Finance Committee together with the Chair of Water Authority Council called on all of the water corporations to immediately adopt a “no-disconnection” policy until the new regulations come into effect. During the Finance Committee debate, quite a few of YEDID’s recommendations and proposals were accepted; YEDID played a central role in the regulation-making process.
