Signing of the New Agrarian Emancipation Act

Today, we witnessed the passage of the New Agrarian Emancipation Act, a monumental step towards agrarian reform and social justice for our Filipino farmers. This landmark law aims to alleviate the debt of 610,054 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries.

As co-sponsor and co-author of this crucial legislation in the Senate, I have high hopes that this law will bring meaningful change and contribute to the welfare of our Filipino farmers, paving the way for agriculture-driven economic growth.

True emancipation comes when we emancipate them from poverty.
