Anti-smuggling bill received final OK

Lawmakers Tuesday passed for the second and final time a bill that provides stiffer penalties for smuggling.

The measure now goes to President Luis Guillermo Solís for his signature.

The bill is one of those proposed by the executive branch.

Those convicted of smuggling goods valued more than $5,000 can face up to five years in prison and some violations could bring an 11-year sentence, according to a summary of the bill.
