AMMAN — The Lower House on Sunday endorsed the 2015 draft domanial money collection law, removing a provision imposing a 9 per cent fine annually on unpaid dues, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Lawmakers also renamed the bill to become the draft public money collection law despite opposition by some MPs who cited the bill’s “established history”.

The law, as mentioned in its validating reasons, aims at facilitating the process of collecting money that individuals and institutions owe to the state as well as increasing public funds through imposing fines on unpaid dues, according to Petra.
