Official newspaper will end publication on newsprint

The country’s official newspaper will stop printing on paper June 30.

The publication is La Gaceta where government agencies publish decrees, proposed laws and laws. This also is where trademarks and other private legal notices appear.

The Imprenta Nacional expects to save a lot of money with the change but promises there will not be layoffs.

The La Gaceta comes out each day and is a thick book.

La Gaceta has had an online, searchable edition for years, and once tried to charge for subscriptions. The Sala IV constitutional court said that the daily government newspaper must be open and free to all citizens.
