In order to expedite the process for passing laws and improving oversight actions, the Commission on Citizen Participation of the Assembly, began the reforms treatment to the Organic Law of the Legislative Branch (LOFL).
It is anticipated that nearly half of the statute may be amended following the observations sent by Assemblyman Virgilio Hernández (AP) and other officialists.
“It is proposed that requests for information would return to be a power for the assemblymen, but in the case of the same … they shall be synchronized, they shall reach an agreement,” Hernandez said yesterday.
Although the current LOFL provides that requests are made “directly”, currently, lawmakers orders for information prior to be sent to ministries or any public institution first passes through the approval of the President of the Assembly, that informs the Unit Supervisors at the same time.
The amendments to the Organic Law of the Legislative Branch are part of the projects contained in the list of 23 legal bodies that officialism wants to approve this year.
