Cantonal affairs

Cantonal popular legislative initiative “1% for culture” The cantonal popular legislative initiative entitled “1% for culture” requires that the equivalent of at least 1% of the state budget be devoted to supporting cultural activities. Basically, the Council of State understands the aspirations of the initiators and specifically wishes to strengthen cantonal support for culture through the new law on the encouragement of cultural activities (LEAC) and the La Chaux-de-project. Swiss Cultural Capital Fund. In form, however, he cannot support the 1% initiative. This would indeed pose too many difficulties in establishing the cantonal budget and in defining the scope of the expenditure concerned. The Council of State therefore recommends the rejection of the initiative in its report to the Grand Council.

The Council of State granted naturalization to 49 people and their families.
