We would like to kindly invite you to use this opportunity and to share your comments on the law initiative. To ensure that your comments are taken into account please send them directly to the Mexican Senate by using the following email address: hacienda@senado.gob.mx

 

Please note the deadline to send the comments and opinions is May 15th, 2020.
