In Pimpy's Investment Chat 

There’s an assumption that the budget has been passed. I’m not sure that’s the case because it says that it’s been received.  Article:  “Parliamentary Finance receive the budget and reassures employees about salaries”.  My guess is that [the budget is not passed] because the agreement between Erbil and Baghdad has not been finalized. Although the part that matters for the budget to go forward has been agreed upon.
