Fecomércio SC affirms rejection of PEC of medicines

Fecomércio SC understands as wrong the rejection of the Proposed Amendment to the Constitution (PEC) 115/2011, which prohibits the collection of taxes on medicines for human use, last Wednesday (12th), by the Commission for Constitution, Justice and Citizenship (CCJ) of the Federal Senate. With the rejection of the so-called PEC dos Remédios, the pharmaceutical sector continues to be penalized with a high tax burden. Fecomércio will ask the Santa Catarina bench in the Senate (and will ask the other state trade federations to do the same with their representatives) to file an appeal at the table asking for the PEC's appreciation by the plenary.
