Abstract or Table of Contents

The new Austrian centre-right government, in office since late 2017, announced plans for national framework legislation, stipulating maximum benefit levels for the minimum income schemes of the federal states. This would imply substantially reduced benefit levels for many recipients with a migration background, and also more generally for households with many children. Debates are ongoing, and a draft bill originally announced for June 2018 was postponed, presumably, inter alia, due to legal issues.
