Lawmakers continue debate on 2112 budget

The national budget still is up in the air even though Casa Presidencial announced Thursday that it had made a deal with opposition lawmakers. The lawmakers rejected the agreement a short time later.

The deal that was rejected was to cut 31 billion colons from the budget, mostly from accounts of the central government. That is about $62 million. The reason the opposing parties opposed the cuts was because the bulk of the money came from highway projects, they said.

The legislature is not scheduled to meet today.
