To pass the final LEDAC priority items, Romualdez rallies the House.
On Monday, Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez urged his House of Representatives colleagues to keep up their efforts for the balance of the first regular session of the 19th Congress to pass the administration of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s priority pro-people policies.
He welcomed back House members and hoped they got enough rest during the break before outlining the duties they must complete before the sine die adjournment of the 19th Congress on June 2. He spoke to the plenary after the resumption of the session.
Only four weeks remain in the first regular session, according to Romualdez, and we have a lengthy legislative agenda that includes measures that the LEDAC (Legislative Executive Advisory Council) has designated as priorities and those outlined in our president’s first State of the Nation Address.
We have been a diligent and hardworking Congress, and I beg all of you to keep up the good work that has now come to represent the 19th Congress. And I think we still have a ton more we can do to further the interests of the Filipino people,” he continued.
Romualdez said on Sunday that President Marcos had signed 11 more LEDAC laws, increasing the total number of priority administrative measures to 42.
The following bills are among them: Amending the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Fixed Term Bill, which has already been forwarded to the President; The Maharlika Investment Fund;
— The National Employment Action Plan, the Local Government Unit Income Classification, and the Amendment to the Universal Health Care Act, which has already been sent to the Senate; — The Philippine Salt Industry Development Act; — The Bureau of Immigration Modernization; — The Infrastructure Development Plan/Build Build Build Program; — The Ease of Paying Taxes; — The Philippine Ecosystem and Natural Capital Accounting System (PENCAS); — The National Employment Action Plan; and — The Amendment to the Universal Health Care Act.
Romualdez stated that he would later have a meeting with party leaders to discuss how the Chamber could make sure that the remaining sessions before the sine die adjournment “is maximized and used most efficiently to achieve the common legislative agenda” of not only the House and Senate but also that of the Executive Branch.
