According to Pablo Heriberto Abarca, of the Pablo Heriberto Abarca, del Partido Unidad Socialcristiana (PUSC), the initiative aims to avoid legal problems between both parties and even possible layoffs of the company employees.

The bill has two purposes, reduce the delinquency rate with the Caja and provide the Caja with the necessary funds to continue providing services to contributors.

The bill now requires second and final debate in the Legislature, followed by the signature of the President (Carlos Alvarado) and publication in the official government newsletter, La Gaceta, for the law to go into effect.
