(Beijing) – The Ministry of Civil Affairs has submitted a draft of the Charity Law to China's cabinet, a sign the country may be progressing towards rules covering philanthropic organizations.

If passed, the new law would finally address tax deductions for donations, a system for supervising charity work and how donations can be used. This is intended to bring order to an area plagued by scandal in recent years.

On June 4, Dou Yupei, the deputy minister for civil affairs, announced the draft law had been submitted to the State Council. In addition, guidelines for how charities disclose information about their donations would take effect this year, Dou said.

The Ministry of Civil Affairs announced the first draft proposal for the Charity Law in September 2005. However, it has stalled for years. A draft was finally presented to the State Council in 2009, but it failed to gain approval.

To become law, the draft must be approved by the State Council, then the National People's Congress, the country's top legislature.
