Dedalo Pignatone aggiunge (about Dedalo Pignatone): "Come anticipato nella risposta al nostro question time, domani il Consiglio dei ministri è chiamato a esprimersi sulla proposta di risoluzione della querelle relativa al riparto del Fondo europeo agricolo per lo sviluppo rurale (FEASR) per il periodo transitorio 2021-2022. Saranno garantite a tutte le Regioni le medesime somme del passato, seppur con criteri di riparto differenti, grazie a uno stanziamento ulteriore voluto dal ministro Patuanelli e pari a 92,7 milioni di euro”. Lo dichiara il deputato Dedalo Pignatone, esponente M5S in commissione Agricoltura. “Superando l’impasse venutasi a creare dal mancato accordo tra le Regioni - prosegue - il ministro Patuanelli sottoporrà un riparto che prevede di utilizzare per il 90% i cosiddetti criteri storici e per il 10% quelli nuovi per il 2021 e 70-30% per il 2022, a cui si aggiungerà un fondo in grado di assicurare il riequilibrio finanziario tra i territori e pari a 92,7 milioni di euro. La proposta, che mi auguro raccolga l’approvazione del Consiglio dei ministri, ha già visto esprimersi positivamente gli assessori regionali di Puglia, Calabria e Campania. Le somme più cospicue per Campania (40,2 milioni di euro) e Sicilia (26,5 milioni di euro) che andranno, dunque, ad aumentare il budget a disposizione per i Programmi di Sviluppo Rurale”. “Si risolverebbe così - (\*) - una situazione bloccatasi sin dallo scorso autunno, vista l’incapacità degli Assessorati regionali di trovare un accordo, peraltro in un modo che garantisce a tutti i territori le medesime somme per l’intero biennio 2021-2022 e venendo incontro alle richieste delle Regioni del Sud Italia che, in caso contrario, avrebbero visto perdere il relativo stanziamento" External link
