Germany hasn't seen a law like this for decades: ten weeks of arguments, countless headlines, rounds of negotiations day and night, coalition strife without end. Practically all citizens are affected because the important question is: How should we heat in the future?
This week, the Building Energy Act, GEG for short, is finally to be passed, literally at the last minute before the parliamentary summer recess. The country faces a political final sprint - with politicians as exhausted as triathletes in the final meters of Iron Man. And it is still not certain whether it will really succeed this week. It is better not to lose sight of this law on your last meters. Therefore, the star accompanies the GEG until the planned farewell with a slightly different live ticker.
Here you can find out everything important, the latest developments - and more: marginal observations from a parliament on the verge of a nervous breakdown, impressions from in front of and behind the scenes. Has the traffic light really cleared up all the points of contention? Could the Federal Constitutional Court still intervene? Who keeps their nerves - and who might lose them so shortly before the summer break? Be there in a week that the Bundestag so rarely experiences.
