Environment ministry losing telecom section

Anyone who thought that the situation was strange to lump telecommunication in with the environment will be happy to know that there is going to be a change.

As a stopgap measure, the Arias administration put the telecom supervision into what was then called the Ministerio de Ambiente, Energía y Telecomunicaciones. This was an awkward fit.

Monday lawmakers approved on first reading the move of the telecom responsibilities to the Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología.

The change received 40 votes in the legislature, and there were no objections. The measure has to be approved a second time to become law.
