"In all likelihood, this will be in the three -digit billion dollar sector," said Berlin's ruling Mayor Franziska Giffey (SPD) after the hours of the states in Berlin on Wednesday.

200 billion euros Exchange

The federal government wants to protect consumers and companies with a package of measures of up to 200 billion euros from high energy prices because of the Ukraine War. The prices for gas and electricity are to be capped. There should be liquidity and equity aids for companies. Aids should be financed through loans. It is also about the implementation of the third relief package planned by the federal government with a volume of 65 billion euros.

The Social Association of Germany (SOVD) asked the federal states not to block the third relief package. "We need solidarity of the strong ones with the weaker and a community effort from the federal and state governments," said chairman Michaela Engelmeier of the Funke Mediengruppe. Four weeks have been past since the agreement on the package. "The federal and state governments must not carry out their dispute on the back of those affected."

concept for the gas price brake

is still unclear how gas prices are capped. "This has to be clarified quickly," said the North Rhine-Westphalian Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) in the ZDF program "Berlin Directors". "You shouldn't put this on the long bank on the part of the government in Berlin." At the beginning of the heating season, families and companies should know why they are.

Hesse's Prime Minister Boris Rhein (CDU) told the Editorial Network Germany (RND) so far, the countries alone have been aware of the volume of 200 billion euros for capping energy prices. The countries worked constructively to combat the energy crisis. But the federal government has to continue to support the federal states: "The 200 billion screen cannot lead to the countries now in the rain."

Financing of the

residential angle is also controversial, as the significant expansion of the housing benefit planned by the federal government is to be financed. From January, the state rent subsidy is to increase by an average of 190 euros per month - it is also to be paid to 1.4 million citizens. "The federal government wants to do a lot, then he should pay for it himself," said Wüst. So far, the housing benefit has been financed by the federal and state governments in half, but the countries no longer want to participate.

Hundreds of thousands of people fled to Germany from Ukraine before the Russian War. The federal states demand that the federal government to redeem its promise from the spring to support them more in the cost of accommodation and support.

Wüst said the newspapers of the Funke media group: "If winter comes when the cold and wet penetrate into the destroyed houses in Ukraine, more people will come to us." Their decent accommodation and care are one of the big tasks for municipalities and countries. "It takes money for that."

Additional relief

Before the 200 billion euro package, known by Scholz as “Doppelwumms”, brought the federal states into the game. This includes, for example, the deferral of tax payments, especially from companies and the protection of tenants from termination if they cannot pay additional costs and rent.
