MEPs have another busy week ahead of them 

This week Parliament committees vote on proposals to better fight terrorism and to strengthen the authorisation procedure for pesticides. MEPs also vote on updated short-stay visa rules.

In a meeting on Monday, Parliament’s civil liberties committee votes on two proposals aimed at strengthening the fight against terrorism and organised crime. The first proposal would tighten the rules on obtaining ID cards and curb the use of fraudulent documents, while the second would facilitate the use of financial information for the prevention or investigation of serious criminal offences.

The civil liberties committee also votes on an update of EU rules on short-stay visas as well as on a proposal for a new EU humanitarian visa system.

Set up following the glyphosate renewal and growing concerns of many Europeans, Parliament’s special committee on pesticides votes on Thursday on recommendations aimed at tackling shortcomings in the EU’s authorisation procedure for pesticides.

The consumer protection committee votes on Thursday on proposals to promote fairness and transparency for business users of online intermediation services such as Amazon, eBay and Google.
