Copper law update

I am trying to polish final revisions to a chapter in a book on the Concertación years edited by Peter Siavelis and Kirsten Sehnbruch. My contribution is on the military, and as it turns out my discussion of the copper law hinges on discussions occurring right now. The lower house passed a reform proposal in June.
At this point, it appears to be a matter of ironing out nuts and bolts. One key point is legislative oversight. Ideally, the final bill should give broad powers to discuss in detail--and with power to chop, at least to some degree--why certain budget items are necessary, how to oversee them, and how to evaluate them.
