MOSCOW, September 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The draft budget for 2012 and for the longer period of 2013-2014 will be adjusted in the State Duma in line with the statements Prime Minister Vladimir Putin made at last weekend’s congress of United Russia on the social obligations of the state, the first deputy chairman of the Duma Committee on budget and taxes, Vitaly Shuba, of United Russia, told Itar-Tass in an interview.
