Work on lawmaking in the housing sector
Among the priority areas of activity of "A Just Russia" an important role is played by the improvement in the housing and communal services sector. Today in Russia over one and a half hundred legislative acts related to housing and communal services have been adopted. More than three thousand by-laws also affect this area, however, ordinary people are constantlyexpress complaints about deceit, registration and other violations of the rights of homeowners and tenants by officials from the housing and communal services.
Six years ago, this led to the creation of the public movement "For a fair housing and communal services", which constantly receives various useful proposals. On the part of Burkov's fellow party members, there are constant calls for the Russian government to stop increasing housing and communal services tariffs, revise the standard for general house needs, and establish tighter control over management companies. The Housing Code must be amended by the residents themselves, who are legitimate consumers of utility services.
Representatives of "A Just Russia" are trying to pass similar proposals through the State and Regional Dumas.
In particular, on their initiative, a law was adopted that made it possible to introduce a state information system into the housing and communal services sector. Now it is possible to more accurately identify the loss of heat, water and light, calculate all household expenses. At the same time, according to Burkov, all these positive initiatives are nullified by the exorbitant growth of tariffs. This is what the government should think about so that the life of pensioners and low-income citizens becomes at least a little more comfortable.
