MOSCOW, December 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The two chambers of Russia's parliament will prepare a co-ordinated legislation plan to drive through proposals in President Vladimir Putin's state of the nation address on Thursday, said upper house Speaker Valentina Matvienko.
Experts are focused on how Putin's plans for the country's short-term development will be implemented. These include controlling capital flight and repatriating Russian money hoarded abroad.
Support for small business and Russian villages are considered agenda priorities alongside local government reform and new principles of forming the Russian Civic Chamber, set up to analyse draft law and monitor parliamentary and government activities.
Vladimir Vasiliev, deputy speaker of the United Russia faction in the State Duma lower house, said on Friday that the chamber would set up a cross-party group to work on draft law to advance the president's plans.
“Some of them are being formulated now, some have already been implemented,” he said.
