The Basilicata Region has decided to invest royalties of its oil to pay a basic income allowance to about 8,000 families without incomes, safety and dignity; mostly those who are unemployed. The drilling and the revenues from it are environmentally controversial, but regardless, Basilicata will pay 95% out of claims by the insurance companies that extract the oil. The payments are expected to total 500 euro per month for a period of one year and are expected to begin in February 2016.
