Opposition warns Italians of future costs from 2019 budget

Italy's opposition parties are warning Italians they'll pay eventually for the populist government's 2019 budget

ROME -- Italy's opposition parties are warning Italians they'll pay eventually for the populist government's 2019 budget.

The spending plan received final legislative approval Sunday, a day after Premier Giuseppe Conte's government won a confidence vote tied to it in the Chamber of Deputies. The Senate approved the budget earlier this month.

The Italian government trimmed its original budget plan to address European Union objections.
