Lawmakers fail to agree on tax plan process

Lawmakers spent two hours in private discussions trying to reach accord on how the president’s tax proposals would continue to be discussed.

This is the measure put forth by Laura Chinchilla Miranda that would bring in an additional $500 million to the government.

The Partido Libaración Nacional, the party to which Ms. Chinchilla belongs, proposed that the thousands of motions that are being considered be voted on without discussion. What followed was a recess that lasted two hours as members of various parties discussed the idea.

No agreement was reached.
