This article was amended on Tuesday, June 18 2019

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the committee had voted down Article 63, which seeks to impose a 2 percent tax increase on most imported goods. Rather, the committee only suspended discussion of the article and will revisit it at a later date. The Daily Star regrets this error.
