A draft amendment to the Budget Law, the latest attempt to shore up supervision on government spending, has apparently struck a chord with the public.

During a monthlong online campaign to solicit feedback on the proposed changes, the proposal received almost 331,000 comments and suggestions from about 20,000 members of the public, as of Sunday, according to the National People's Congress, the top legislature.

This is the second-largest number of comments received by a draft law since the practice of publishing drafts online to solicit opinions was introduced in 2005.

The largest number, 560,000 comments, was received by a Labor Contract Law draft amendment. A proposed amendment that would slash the tax burden levied on personal incomes elicited more than 230,000 comments last year.

Details about the comments directed at the Budget Law have not yet been released.
