The legislature is getting an electronic system that will register and show clearly the voting of its 57 members.
The 120 million-colon system ($226,000) includes audio connections for the various committee rooms and the floor of the legislature.
The vendor was identified as Mas-Música Internacional. The firm said that the system could be installed in 45 days.
The system also includes large screens that show the vote as well and the time remaining for lawmakers who are speaking during the afternoon sessions.
A legislative summary said that the voting totals could be suspended if lawmakers require a secret ballot. That sometimes takes place with personnel appointments.
