Liberación lawmaker gives list of legislative priorities

The Partido Liberación Nacional, which now is in the minority in the legislature, has identified 14 bills that its lawmaker, Silvia Sánchez Venegas, said should be approved.

Top spot goes to a change in the Costa Rica Constitution that would characterize drinking water as a human right. The second priority is a bill to create a Ministerio del Deporte y la Recreación. Although there is now and has been in the Laura Chinchilla administration, such a ministry, it was not official.

The ministry would take on the role that has been vested in the culture ministry.

No. 3 is a law against labor and educational harassment, and No. 4 is a bill to prevent sexual violence against children and adolescents.
