Congress does its job, 33 bills move on for approval

Colombia’s Congress approved 33 bills for President Juan Manuel Santos to approve and make laws, hopefully before the New Year. The most urgent among them is the tributary reform, because otherwise it would not go into effect until 2014.

The number of articles included in each one determines the time Mr. Santos has to approve a law. When a bill has fewer than 20 articles, the president has six days to sign it; he has ten days if the bill has between 21 and 50 articles and as much as 20 days if the bill is even longer.
