Article 143c[Compensation for the cessation of joint tasks]

(1) From 1 January 2007 until 31 December 2019, the Länder shall be entitled to receive annual payments from the federal budget as compensation for losing the Federation’s financial contributions resulting from the abolition of the joint tasks of extension and construction of institutions of higher education, including university hospitals and edu­cational planning, as well as for losing financial assistance for the improvement of municipal traffic infrastructure and for the promotion of social housing. Until 31 December 2013, these amounts are to be determined by averaging the financial share of the Federation for the years 2000 to 2008.

(2) Until 31 December 2013, the payments pursuant to paragraph (1) shall be distributed among the Länder in the form of:

1. fixed annual payments the amounts of which shall be determined according to the average share of each Land during the period 2000 to 2003;

2. payments earmarked for the functional area of the former joint financing.

(3) Until the end of 2013, the Federation and the Länder shall review the extent to which the financing allotted to indi­vidual Länder pursuant to paragraph (1) is still appropriate and necessary for the discharge of their tasks. Beginning on 1 January 2014, the earmarking pursuant to item 2 of paragraph (2) of the financial means allotted under para­graph (1) shall cease; the earmarking for the volume of the means for investment purposes shall remain unchanged. Agreements resulting from Solidarity Pact II shall remain unaffected.

(4) Details shall be regulated by a federal law which shall require the consent of the Bundesrat.
