Magdo-doble-kayod ang Kamara para matapos ang priority measures ni Pangulong Duterte sa pagbabalik sesyon nito sa Enero 18.
Ayon kay House Majority Leader at Leyte 1st District Rep. Martin Romualdez, chairman ng House Committee on Rules na sisiguruhing mapapasa ang Corporate Recovery and Tax Incentives for Enterprises (CREATE) at ang Amendments to Republic Act (RA) No. 9160 o Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) of 2001.
“These (CREATE and AMLA amendments) are administration measures which the Department of Finance classified as vital for our economic recovery program. We are going to harmonize immediately the differences between the Senate and the House versions during the bicameral conferences,” pahayag ni Romualdez.
Sisikapin din ng Kongreso na maipasa ang AMLA bago ang Pebrero upang hindi ito maisama sa gray list ng Financial Action Task Force ayon kay Romualdez.
“This measure seeks to address the deficiencies in the anti-money laundering law and to implement regulations that will improve efforts to curb terrorist financing,” punto ng mambabatas.
Nagpasalamat din si Romualdez sa mga Senador na nag-doble-kayod din para sa mga prayoridad na panukala.
“We need all these laws if we are to bounce back from the economic ravages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” aniya.
Lahad pa nito na ipapasa sa ikatlo at huling pagbasa ang House Bill No. 8097 o ang Additional Benefits for Solo Parents, at ang batas na Instituting the Magna Carta of Filipino Seafarers and Extending the Implementation of the Lifeline Rate.
Habang ita-transmit na sa Senado ang prayoridad din ng Pangulo na HB 00304 o ang Passive Income and Financial Intermediary Taxation (PIFITA) Act; HB 4664 o ang Real Property Valuation Assessment; HB 06134 o ang Mandating
Banking Institutions to Strengthen the Financing System for Agricultural, Fisheries and Rural Development in the Philippines; HB 78 o ang Public Service Act Amendments; HB 5832 o ang Department of Filipinos Overseas and Foreign Employment (DFOFE) Act; HB 5989 o ang Department of Disaster Resilience (DDR); HB 07406 o ang Bureau of Fire Protection Modernization Act; at ang HB 7805 o ang Internet Transaction Act/E Commerce Law.
Ang HB 7814 o ang Strengthening Drug Prevention and Control ay nasa sponsorship na.
“We will keep our dedication, commitment, passion and the flame burning in pursuing Charter change until we reap the real benefits of genuine constitutional reforms for our children and the succeeding generations,” aniya.
“We need to create opportunities and strong economic growth that will also be felt by ordinary people,” dagdag ni Romualdez.
