The Diet passed 16 of the 15 newly submitted government-sponsored bills and two treaties during the extraordinary session that ended on Dec. 9. Those include the Japan-U.S. trade deal, which was given top priority by the government and ruling parties, and a bill to revise a special law on teacher salaries, which is aimed at promoting work-style reforms for teachers. Two government-sponsored bills that had been subject to further discussions were also approved. (Abridged)
