Sejm approves the sale of non-compliant lignite

229 deputies voted for the bill, 9 were against, and 203 abstained.

The PiS amendment was adopted to temporarily (until April 30, 2023) suspend the ban on the sale of lignite and the penalties for placing such fuel on the market, and not to punish (also temporarily, until April 30, 2023) for breaking anti-smog resolutions in relation to lignite. The amendment introduces changes to the Environmental Protection Law and the Act on the fuel quality monitoring and scrutinizing system. The current regulations in the fight against smog prohibit the sale of lignite to households.
