THE House of Representatives has approved on third and final reading a total of 31 of the administration’s priority measures.
“We are proud of our collective accomplishment — 31 out of 42 and counting. As of today, we have achieved a significant part of our goal in less than a year of session,” Speaker Martin Romualdez said in a statement on Thursday.
Among the measures, the latest ones to be approved by the House on third and final reading were the 30-year national infrastructure program bill and the proposed national land use law.
Three of the measures have been signed by President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. into law—the Subscriber Identity Module Registration Act, which moved the barangay (village) and youth council elections to Oct. 2023, and the amendment of the law on the fixed term of the military chief and other high-ranking officers.
The bill seeking to condone unpaid loans of agrarian reform beneficiaries has been sent to Malacañang.
