Brussels approved the Netherlands' budget for 2015. The financial plans of the government-Rutte meet the European budget rules.
The first budget of the city management of D66, VVD and SP was adopted by the Amsterdam city council last night.
Amsterdam is investing in education and poverty as agreed by coalition parties D66, VVD and SP.
This is evident from the budget for 2015 that was presented by alderman Udo Kock (D66).
€32 million extra is available for Amsterdam schools and an extra €20 million for the fight against poverty. The waste levy decreases with 15 million euro.
Minister of Finance Jeroen Dijsselbloef presented the Budget in the Second Chamber yesterday. The Budget contains the Cabinet's plans for the next year.
