The Knesset Monday approved on the first reading a bill that would cut salaries of Knesset Members and the President of Israel by 10 percent. Salaries of ministers and judges would be cut by one percent.
The measure passed by a margin of 38-15 but likely will be altered by Knesset committee that will discuss the bill before returning it to the Knesset floor.Jewish Press News Briefs
