The only way forward to resolve these disagreements between Baghdad and Erbil is to pass the Federal Revenue Sharing Law and the Federal Hydrocarbon Law…
WHY DOES EVERYONE PIN SO MUCH ON THE OIL AND GAS LAW AS A PRECURSOR OR SIGN OF AN “RV”?  IT GETS DOWN TO THE REVENUE SHARING LAW. THIS LAW (REVENUE SHARING LAW) HAS HAD ONLY ONE READING.
THAT WE CAN TELL BY THE PARLIAMENT SITE. THE GOI/THE KRG STILL NEEDS A CENSUS… CERTAINLY, WE HAVE SEEN ARTICLES ELUDING THAT THERE HAS BEEN A CENSUS PERFORMED, HOWEVER, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF THIS AT ANY GOVT SITE.
AND BTW…IF ALL LAWS WERE IN PLACE PERTAINING TO BE ABLE TO DISTRIBUTE SHARES TO THE PEOPLE FOR OIL PROCEEDS, THEY COULD EASILY DOLE OUT THE MONIES TO THEM AT THE CURRENT RATE OF THE IQD.

THE PRIMARY REASON TO WATCH FOR THIS, IF EVEN STILL APPLICABLE, IS THAT WE WANT TO SEE COHESION BETWEEN THE GOI AND THE KURDS.
TO MY MIND, THE PASSING OF HCL, OIL AND GAS, ETC IS NOT AN ALARM BELL THAT THE “RV” IS COMING. IT’S GOOD, BUT IT’S NOT A TELL TALE SIGN.
