Lawmakers from Guanacaste have engineered the creation of a special committee to handle the problems of that province.
The goal is to promote the economic development of the area, an announcement said.
The new group will have true committee status in that it will be able to discuss laws, approve or disapprove them and submit them for a binding vote to the full legislature.
The special committee will endure for four years, the life of the current legislature, the announcement said.
The new committee said that a priority is the creation of a special economic zone for Guanacaste where businesses can thrive.
