MANILA, Philippines- Upang agad nang maipatupad, tiniyak ni House Speaker Martin Romualdez na papaspasan ng House of Representatives ang pagpasa sa 8 sa 19 priority measures ni Pangulong Bongbong Marcos na nabanggit sa kanyang State of the Nation Address(SONA).

Ayon kay Romualdez nakapasa na sa Third and Final Reading ang mga nasabing panukala noong 18th Congress kaya naman maaaring gamitin ang House Rule 10, Section 48 kung saan ang mga panukalang ito ay maaari nang agad na ideleberate sa committee level.

“This particular rule would greatly hasten consideration and endorsement by any committee of any covered bill, and its eventual plenary approval,” paliwanag ni Romualdez.

Kabilang sa nasabing priority ang Valuation Reform bill; Passive Income and Financial Intermediary Taxation Act (PIFITA); E-Governance bill, Internet Transaction bill ;Government Financial Institutions Unified Initiatives to Distressed Enterprises for Economic Recovery (GUIDE) bill; Medical Reserve Corps; National Disease Prevention Management Authority at Virology Institute of the Philippines.

Tiniyak ni Romualdez na ang iba pang priority bills ni Pangulong Marcos ay tututukan ding maipasa agad ng Kamara.

“We will work on the immediate approval of other SONA measures the soonest time possible. We are in full support of the President’s entire legislative agenda, including the key priority proposals for legislation he has asked Congress to consider. We will act on these with dispatch,” giit pa ni Romualdez.

Kasama pa sa priority measures ang Unified System of Separation; Retirement and Pension bill; Department of Water Resources bill; National Land Use Act; Mandatory Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) and National Service Training Program; Budget Modernization bill; National Government Rightsizing Program; National Defense Act; Enactment of an Enabling Law for the Natural Gas Industry; Amendments to the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA) at Amendments to the Build-Operate-Transfer Law. Gail Mendoza
