November 30, 2016

While her colleagues are preoccupied with public hearings on controversial national issues “in aid of legislation,” Senator Loren Legarda has been literally working double time. This is not to praise her because she does not need any. But I just found out from official press releases issued yesterday from her office that she is currently handling two important legislative measures.

According to her office, the Senators approved last Monday night in marathon sessions the proposed 2017 General Appropriations Act (GAA) bill. As chairperson of the Senate committee on finance, Legarda is shepherding the approval of the GAA bill.
