Nangako si House Appropriations Committee Chair at AKO BICOL party-list Rep. Elizaldy Co na maisasapinal ng kamara ang panukalang Military and Uniformed Personnel (MUP) Pension Reform bago matapos ang taon.
Ayon kay Co, susuportahan ng kaniyang komite ang hangarin ng House leadership na matapos ang LEDAC priority bills ng administrasyon ngayong 2023.
“As the Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, it is my utmost duty to work in collaboration with Speaker Romualdez and our esteemed colleagues to ensure that the priority bills gain the momentum they deserve. These bills hold the key to our nation’s progress and prosperity. I assure everyone that, before the end of 2023, we will find a viable solution to issues surrounding the MUP Pension that benefits everyone involved,” saad ni Co.
Matatandaang noong nakaraang linggo ay sinabi mismo nina House Speaker Martin Romualdez at ad hoc committee chair Joey Salceda na naplantsaha ang magiging porma ng MUP Pension Bill.
Isa ang MUP Pension Reform sa 17-priority measure ng Marcos Jr. administration.
Pito sa bilang na ito ay aprubado na ng Kamara at target na mapagtibay ang apat bago ang break sa Oktubre.
Ang nalalabi namang 6 ay kanilang ipapasa bago ang Christmas break.
Kasama na dito ang MUP Pension, Motor Vehicle User’s Charge, Revised Procurement Law, New Government Auditing Code, Rationalization of Mining Fiscal Regime, at National Water Act.
“These bills demonstrate our unwavering dedication: to enhance road infrastructure and safety, to provide better support for our valiant defenders, to promote transparency and efficiency in government projects, to ensure accountability and responsible use of public funds, to strike a balance between economic growth and environmental protection, and to safeguard our water resources for future generations,” dagdag ni Co. | ulat ni Kathleen Jean Forbes
