The quality of the initiatives presented in the first six months of the 63 local Legislature worsenedaccording to the evaluation carried out by the Legislative Observatory of the Western Institute of Technology and Higher Studies (ITESO).
In the review, Congress obtained a rating of 59.5%, almost six points below of the last evaluation carried out by the Observatory in the last Legislature. In total, they analyzed 101 initiatives, of which 24 were classified as procedural issues or grammatical correction issues and 77 were identified as addressing issues of social need. They reviewed whether they met elements such as budget feasibility; cost-effectiveness analysis; legislative technique, if they contain regulatory impact evaluation and analysis mechanisms.
“These data imply that the legislators that make up this Legislature do not generate analyzes that allow for evidence of the cost of successfully implementing their initiative, if the State has the opportunity to budget for such implementation, or if there is a positive balance between the cost and the social or economic benefits caused”, states the document.
As areas of opportunity to improve, it refers that Greater legislative planning is required aimed at potentiating existing public policies.
Con 87.5%, the emecista deputy Mónica Magaña Mendoza was the one who obtained the best grade in the review of the individual initiatives that she presented. In contrast, the lowest score was for proposals presented by legislators Claudia García Hernández from Morena, Érika Ramírez from the Green Party and Hugo Contreras from the PRI.
In the case of Morenista Tomás Vazquez Vigil, he did not present any individual or collective initiative in the first semester. By parliamentary group, the best evaluation was received by Hagamos, Movimiento Ciudadano and the PAN.
