Local govt demands new deal on refugees
In the tug-of-war between federal and local government over who should bear the costs of housing refugees, the states and communities are demanding a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
"The Federal government should not leave the states and communities to take on this important question alone," the social democratic (SPD) deputy minister-president of Baden-Württemberg, Nils Schmid, told the Südwest Presse.
Lower Saxony's minister-president Stephan Weil (SPD) similarly called this weekend for a conference to be held at the latest by the summer.
