Because of the changes, the motion goes back to the Senate for a new vote.
The approved text is a substitution Rapporteur in plenary session, deputy Joseneldo (PDT-AP), which used most of the Senators’ transcripts for Bill 3630/21Reformulation of the opinion of the Committee for the Defense of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, approved in 2022.
