The petition calls on the Parliament to use its Lisbon treaty powers to initiate a further revision of the EU Union treaties with the objective of creating a full fiscal union with a federal economic government.
The petition led to a lively discussion in the Petitions Committee watched by a crowd of federalist supporters who had gathered for the occasion.
The hearing will be followed up by a public hearing on federal government probably held in collaboration with the Committee of Constitutional Affairs (AFCO) and the Committee of Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) next year.
