Lawmaker sponsoring Brazil pension reform says it has stalled

BRASILIA, May 18 (Reuters) - A Brazilian congressman sponsoring a pension reform bill said on Thursday there was “no room to advance” on the legislation after President Michel Temer came under investigation for allegedly condoning bribery of a potential witness in a major corruption probe.

Congressman Arthur Maia said in a written statement that Brazil is “living in a critical moment” and that until the political situation calms down, no progress will be made on the landmark reform. (Reporting by Maria Carolina Marcello; Editing by Daniel Flynn)
