The Committee for the Defense of Women’s Rights of the Chamber of Deputies approved a bill that should encourage women’s participation in sports. The proposal allocates a 30% share of the funds raised from lotteries to female sports, which are passed on to sporting entities.

The text also provides that 5% of the resources transferred to entities of the National Confederation of Clubs (Fenaclubes) will be granted to training programs for managers of social clubs and to encourage female participation in management and leadership positions in sport.

Bill 3646/23, by deputy Natália Bonavides (PT-RN), received a favorable opinion from the rapporteur, deputy Lêda Borges (PSDB-GO).

“By promoting the development of women’s sport and encouraging, from the ground up, those female athletes who dedicate themselves and work in various sports, the project aims to improve the infrastructure and increase the visibility of competitions in this area”, explained deputy Lêda Borges.

According to the proposal, entities that receive resources from lotteries will have a period of one year to adapt to the new rules. This time starts to come into effect after the publication of the law.

However, this project ends up modifying the Sports Betting Law.

Processing of the proposal that changes the collection of lotteries

According to Agência Câmara de Notícias, the bill that modifies the allocation of part of the lottery revenue is being finalized.

The conclusive nature is a procedural rite by which the project is voted only by the committees designated to analyze it, eliminating the need for deliberation in the Plenary.

The project loses its conclusive nature if there is a divergent decision between the commissions. Or even if, regardless of whether it is approved or rejected, there is an appeal signed by 52 deputies for consideration of the matter in the Plenary.

Furthermore, the proposal will be analyzed by the Sports commissions; and Constitution and Justice and Citizenship of the House.
