Keywords Economic Governance Background MEPs steering new economic governance laws through Parliament presented their draft reports in the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee in January. They propose stricter budget rules and sanctions to prevent future debt crises in the Eurozone and enable sustainable growth. They also propose radical changes to current laws so as to enhance accountability and instill a sense of ownership, both of which they judge were sorely lacking in the first ten years of EU economic and monetary union. To this end, the rapporteurs propose a stronger role for the European Commission at all stages of the various governance processes and reduce the scope for political back-scratching, by making it more difficult for Member States to vote down a Commission decision and broker deals to sidestep the rules. They also say that more decisions should be made public and that various dialogues should be "institutionalised", e.g. by including "European Semester" for economic policy coordination in the legal texts, by having Member States come to the Parliament to explain their economic policy and budgetary positions, and by giving a greater say to national parliaments.
