Even 25 years after moving to the capital Berlin, Bonn is still the seat of government – and should continue to be so. The key points for an additional agreement to the so-called Berlin-Bonn Act have just been presented by representatives of the federal government, the states of North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate as well as the city and region of Bonn. After that, Bonn will continue to be a federal city and “take on additional functions for the Federal Republic,” as Federal Construction Minister Klara Geywitz (SPD) calls it. While the Bonners Mayor Katja Dörner (Greens) is pleased about the location funding, The Taxpayers’ Association criticizes that it is long overdue to abolish the law once and for allafter all, the so-called double seat costs according to the taxpayers’ association around 20 million euros per year.
