SDS Calls for Crisis Bill in Wake of Natural Disaster

Ljubljana, 7 February - The opposition Democrats (SDS) urged the government on Friday to adopt a crisis act that will provide financial and other forms of aid to those worst affected by the ice storm that wreaked havoc around the country in recent days. The opposition New Slovenia (NSi) also wants more determined action and proposed public works as one of the solutions.
