Rome, December 18 - Members of Italy's parliament are preparing for final votes Tuesday and Wednesday on the government's "Save Taranto" decree. The decree, designed to keep the embattled ILVA steel plant in the southern city of Taranto operational, was approved last week by a parliamentary commission with only a few amendments. Government ministers have made the plant's 20,000 jobs a priority, pitting them against Taranto prosecutors fighting to close what they consider an environmental and health hazard. The government's "Save Taranto" decree would keep the plant operating while it undergoes environmental improvements, despite the efforts of prosecutors dating back to July.
