Lawmakers want to hear from central government officials who are in key roles in the new administration.
The Comisión Permanente de Asuntos Hacendarios, the legislature’s principal financial committee, agreed Wednesday to hear from the nation’s first vice president, Helio Fallas, who also is in charge of the Ministerio de Hacienda.

There also are about 14 pieces of proposed legislation on which the committee seeks an opinion.
Also being asked to visit is Olga Marta Sánchez, minister of Planificación. Her date is June 21 when lawmakers seek to hear about the the nation’s development plan.
