If the submission of amendments to a properly justified and publicly consulted draft law was conditioned by a parallel and timely submission o at least a minimum necessity and impact assesment, it would be possible to prevent non-systemic last minute changes to adopted laws which are frequently made as a result of pressure of interest group, and not in the public interest.
