Manila, Philippines – Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson made a clarification about the credit snatching allegations against Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV relating to the section of RA 10931 for his re-election bid.
“Kapag napapag-usapan ang libreng matrikula sa kolehiyo, ang unang naiisip ko, si Senador Bam Aquino. Alam kong siya ang nagtiyagang itulak ito sa Senado bilang author at principal sponsor ng Free Tuition Law,” Lacson said
In a video by the Kaya Natin! Development, the previous PNP boss said that Aquino’s part as the main support is more diligently contrasted with being a creator as you have to defend the bill on the plenary..
“‘Yun ang mas mahirap gawin kasi tatayo ka doon, tatanungin ka ng mga kasamahan mo, idedepensa mo ‘yung bill, yung panukalang batas na itinutulak mo,” he said.
In an old article by Politiko on August 2017, at that point Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III has additionally dispelled some rumors on who should get kudos for starting the Free Tertiary Education Act – in the midst of the heated arguments on social media about credit grabbing of the law’s passage.
“(The) principal sponsor sponsor is (Sen.) Bam (Aquino) because he was the one who reported it out (on the floor) and started the defense (to steer the passage of the bill). (Sen. Francis) Chiz (Escudero) is the co-sponsor,” Sotto said.
“But the principal author is Ralph (Recto) or the first one who files the bill on subject and the others are co-authors,” Sotto also said
“The one who presents and defends the bill on the floor is the principal sponsor. All other presenters are co-sponsors. Take it from me, I’m the longest sitting and most experienced member. (And) rules (committee) chair three times,” he added.
According to records of the Senate, Recto was the first to introduce the bill in June 30, 2016 and was followed by Aquino and other senators.
