Nobody would benefit unless the law was changed to allow municipios to receive these funds, which IS being contemplated BUT it is my personal belief that these funds would be used for political campaigns and populist projects, sort of as a petty cash box, much as the money that enters our paramunicipal water company has historically been used. Even when funds are misappropriated and discovered by the state accounting offices, nothing is ever done unless that municipio is governed by the party NOT in power at the state level, and even then I have yet to see any former officials pay fines or do jail time. Currently at least one state representative is taking advantage of the immunity they receive when they take the oath of office to defy court rulings against him. It really is absolutely amazing what our politicians and public servants are permitted to get away with year after year. One of our biggest problems in Mexico is impunity.
