The second relates to the commitment to measuring the point of sale interface and cash register. We are granting the extension precisely because we are determined to follow state law to the letter. It is an extension, not a postponement and relaxation. Connecting cash registers and points of sale is a project of national importance that we must all commit to immediately. I advise everyone to activate it, because after the specified deadlines, they will only face penalties. We don't want to collect any fines so there shouldn't be any delays!».
