The state Duma rejected in the first reading a bill allowing certain categories of citizens to receive part of the Federal budget revenues from mineral extraction.

The document, introduced by deputies from the Communist party, involves the distribution in equal shares between the majority of citizens of the Russian Federation the Federal budget revenues from payments received in connection with mining. First of all it concerns the formally employed citizens and pensioners.

According to the document, for the first year, the competent authorities should thus be allocated 20% of Federal budget revenues from payments received from the subsoil users in connection with the extraction of minerals, including taxes and fees for each subsequent year by 2 percentage points more than in the past. In the case of the adoption of this law, each under its action, the citizen is able to obtain only in 2018, about 10 thousand rubles, explained his inclusion of project developers.

Against the adoption of the draft law by the government of the Russian Federation and the Duma Committee on natural resources, property and land relations, since, in their opinion, the proposed changes go beyond the subject of legal regulation of the law on subsoil, in which they are made — the distribution of the revenues of the Federal budget relate to the regulation of the budgetary legislation.

Payments for use of natural resources is one of the main sources of revenues of the budget of the Russian Federation. A portion of the proceeds from the use of natural resources spent on the provision of state functions, including the protection of the rights and freedoms of citizens, formation of Reserve Fund and national welfare Fund — thus, the right of a citizen on income from natural resources is implemented by the listed state costs for providing benefits and payments guaranteed by the Russian Constitution and Federal laws, as mentioned in the conclusion of the Cabinet on the bill.
