The state of Baden-Württemberg alone would cost around four billion euros. "This is not stampable," said the Greens politician in Stuttgart. In contrast to the federal government, the countries are subject to a rigorous debt brake.
The federal government must first explain to the countries, as the successor to the nine euro ticket for buses and trains should be designed. In any case, Baden-Württemberg will no longer assume that the federal government will give a start-up financing and then would have to continue to pay the countries. «The state of Baden-Württemberg will no longer give its approval in the Federal Council. It has to be really clear to everyone. »

Kretschmann also demands clarification
Kretschmann criticized "that the countries have not been included before". At a special President of the Minister on September 28, there must also be clarification of the federal government's regionalization funds. It could not be that you would have to introduce a cheap ticket, but would have to unsubscribe from the countries because of the lack of money.
The traffic light coalition had presented a third package of measures a week ago as a compensation for the rapidly rising prices, the extent of which the government appreciates at around 65 billion euros. There was also criticism from the Union-led countries of North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria. Kretschmann stimulated a new federalism commission to clarify the financial issues, "so that we can get out of this constant loop, this argument".
