Lawmakers establish agenda of priority bills to study

Heads of the political parties in the Asamblea Legislativa have established priorities for their agenda.

There are 18 bills that will receive discussion and possible votes.

Among these are the revisions in the nation’s traffic law. The revision of the alcohol law that received an initial favorable vote Tuesday also is on the list.

Two bills to beef up tax collection are there, too, as well as a law that addresses trafficking in persons and related activities.

An amendment to the criminal code is contained in another bill that defines computer crimes and identity theft.

Proposed laws addressing money laundering, casino licensing and the plight of persons living in the nation’s maritime zone also are on the agenda. One proposed law gives greater power to sign language.

Another proposed law that is on the priority list would create a data base of car guards, those individuals who purport to keep their eyes on parked vehicles while the operator conducts business in downtown areas.
