Senate does not pass the Law of Worthy Retirement

Despite the acts of civil disobedience of retirees that were registered yesterday night, Tuesday, at the end of the legislative session, the measure known as the Law of Worthy Retirement was not approved that would guarantee that pensions would not be cut.

The non-progressive representative Lourdes Ramos said in an interview with Radio Isla 1320am that the measure was left hanging when the president of the Senate, Thomas Rivera Schatz tried to present a Last minute amendment that she rejected because she understood that she was doing the academic project.

According to Ramos, the senatorial leader's amendment sought to condition the effectiveness of the law to what the court determined .

The legislator also maintained that she will be in talks with La Fortaleza so that the project is included in an extraordinary, since she understands there may be dialogue with the president of the Senate to reach a measure that both bodies can approve and guarantee that the pensions are not cut.

Last night a group of pensioners gathered in front of the Capitol to carry out civil disobedience and demand that the House Bill 2434 be approved. [19659006]
