Two more persons have appeared before a legislative committee to object to plans for a formal colegio for tourism workers.
They are Flor de Liz Rojas Santamaría and Emilia Fernández, both of the Cámara de Empresarios de la Micro y Pequeña Empresa Turística. Their basic objection was that many of the workers in tourism do not have university degrees that the proposed legislation requires.
The measure, No. 18.390, is being considered by the Comisión Permanente Especial de Turismo. The bill seeks to enroll those working in tourism into a legally established colegio similar to those to which physicians, dentists an lawyers belong. Membership would be required to work in the tourism field, according to the current text of the bill.
