As part of the parliamentary work in the office of MK Nitzan Horovitz, our main tasks involved formulating and promoting environmental legislative initiatives, formulating and submitting environmental related queries to ministers of the government as well as responding to public inquiries regarding various environmental issues. In regard to legislative proposals, the most prominent ones are the proposed carpooling law as well as two amendments to the Forest Ordinance (The appointment of a forest officer in the local authorities and the obligation to publish plans to cut down trees). Further significant proposed legislation included laws designed to settle the Dead Sea issue while maintaining and preserving its unique natural character.
