Chronic mismanagement and a refusal to adjust the budget as revenue fell due to the national crisis and the global low in oil prices have left Rio de Janeiro state in a terrible fiscal situation. As a result, government services are collapsing and the state is falling into chaos.
Precisely one month ago, Temer announced a federal intervention to ensure public order in the state, placing its law enforcement institutions under the Eastern Military Region's general, who receives orders directly from the Presidency.
