08/03/2020

The governor of the state of Piauí, Wellington Dias, requests the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) to authorize an exceptional allocation of 35% of resources from the Fund for the Maintenance and Development of Basic Education and the Appreciation of Education Professionals (Fundeb), from a judicial execution of R$ 1.6 billion for actions to combat the Covid-19 pandemic in the state. The request is the object of Direct Unconstitutionality Action (ADI) 6490, distributed to Justice Cármen Lúcia.

The amount requested corresponds to approximately R$ 578 million in surpluses. The governor intends that the STF allow its release and the flexibility of its use exclusively in actions and programs of health, social assistance and generation of employment and income directly related to the pandemic and its socioeconomic effects in the state.
