Church might stop receiving state funds

 

In 2013 the Romanian state offered approximately EUR 71 M for the financing of churches in Romania and abroad. The sum has created discontent among MPs.

A group of MPs headed by Green Party Lower Chamber member Remus Cernea, known for his stance against the Church, is preparing a draft law that would replace the form of financing religious denominations from the state budget with the German model.
