According to the release, the group requested members of the National Legislature to make available additional new buses to convey staffers to work.
The release quoted the group chairman Bobby Addison as saying that the three buses which are currently being used to convey workers are not road worthy as the lifespan of the buses have expired.
In the 2009-20013 modernization plans, the staffers’ Chairman said there is an urgent need to rationalize and professionalize the strength of the legislative staff without jeopardizing the political standing of the lawmakers and their constituencies.
The staffers also highlighted the legislative library as one of the infrastructure that needs to be revamped since it was destroyed by fire. They said the library is not getting the full support from the National legislature.
Mr. Addison noted that before the destruction of the library, its offices were equipped with computers and internet services which enabled staffers and lawmakers to carryout daily research at the Capitol Building.
He appealed to technicians that crafted the LAC document to ensure that the modernization plan is fully implemented so as to enhance the work of Legislators at their various constituencies in the country.
The release said the Grand Bassa County modernization plan also highlighted lack of mechanism in the constituencies to ensure legislative consultation or reporting.
On the professional capacity of the staff, the release said both personal staffers and central administration of the 52nd and 53rd legislature lacked capacity building opportunities resulting to the huge pool of personnel who are poorly trained, and lack adequate equipment.
