The Knesset votes 61-57 to pass the annual Arrangements Law after 3.5 hours of arguments over the legislation, hours after it passed the 2021 budget bill.

The Arrangements Law — which determines how funds will be implemented — is usually the final precursor toward passing the budget. The Knesset will vote this afternoon on the 2022 state budget, which is expected to pass by the same margin.
