According to google translator, the gist of it is, Toulouse want their stadium brought up to Superleague standard, it needs to be financed by the state department, they are pestering them to do it, but as of yet no timetable.

So the rough equivalent here would be national government, county council, district council lead by the city council. You could have included the local Development agency but these seem to be on the way out.
