Graft-tainted Congress opens second regular session
By Maila Ager, Marc Cayabyab |INQUIRER.net10:16 am | Monday, July 28th, 2014

MANILA, Philippines—Gavels were banged as the second regular session of the 16th Congress opened Monday morning, six hours ahead of the fifth national address of President Benigno Aquino III.

This came while the Philippine Congress is being hounded by allegations of a massive corruption with some lawmakers allegedly pocketing millions of pesos in kickbacks from their discretionary funds.

Hindi lang pala may iyakan sa SONA (courtesy of the President's showbiz sister). Pwede rin tawanan with this lady Senator's outrageous outfit.

Binay was in the Senate wearing a gown which was a cross between a Filipiniana and the Korean Hanbok. From Jewel in the Palace to any other Korean television series, and to a character just downright fictional, Pokemon’s Bellossom, Binay was the darling with her yellow-blue-green long skirt and an immaculate white long sleeved top. In all fairness to Binay, Bellossom is the third-level evolution of Oddish.

Lady senators lead repeal of crime of ‘premature marriage’
The Senate passes on final reading a bill repealing a Penal Code provision which penalizes widows who marry within 301 days after the death of their husbands
http://www.rappler.com/nation/64825-...ature-marriage

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines – “There should be no room for laws that perpetuate discrimination against women.”

xxx

Senate Bill 1647 repeals the crime of “premature marriage,” which penalizes widows who marry within 301 days after the death of their husbands, and women who re-marry before the expiration of the 301-day period after legal separation. These women face the penalty of one to 6 months in jail and a fine not above P500.


That Spanish era provision was intended to protect a family's lineage in case a widow subsequently marries (and bears the child of) a different man. Modern DNA testing methods can easily ascertain paternity. In any case, the provision is discriminatory to women.

Miriam blasts LTFRB

Santiago: LTFRB to blame for heavy traffic

Quote:
SENATOR Miriam Defensor Santiago filed a resolution questioning the legality of two recent memorandum circulars by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said to cause current traffic gridlocks in Katipunan Avenue and parts of C5.

"I'm calling for a Senate investigation on these LTFRB issuances because they prejudice public transport safety to benefit only a few. It seems that these issuances violate the Aquino administration's policies for economic development," Santiago said.

Santiago identified these LTFRB issuances as Memorandum Circular Numbers 2014-009, suspending operations against colorum buses and out-of-line operations; and 2014-010, which allowed public utility buses (PUBs) to modify their routes and pass through major thoroughfares, such as Edsa, from 19 June 2014 to 17 October 2014.

Colorum buses are public utility vehicles operating without a permit or are out-of-line public utility vehicles that operate outside their approved routes or area.

"The suspension of operations against the out-of-line buses would only legalize and spur the proliferation of unauthorized vehicles, which is inimical to the country’s economic development," she said.

The senator also said that these issuances completely disregard numerous studies, which say that the country is losing P153 billion a year because of traffic congestion.

House to speed up economic Cha-cha

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines - The House of Representatives is expected to speed up approval of a resolution seeking to amend restrictive economic provisions of the Constitution to insulate it from attempts to extend the term of President Aquino.

(snipped)

RBH 1 seeks to ease restrictions on some provisions of Articles XII (National Economy and Patrimony), XIV (Education, Science and Technology, Arts, Culture and Sports) and XVI (General Provisions) of the Constitution. It has a counterpart measure in the Senate authored by Sen. Ralph Recto.

Spanish terms removed, criminal liability age lowered in draft PHL criminal code
By MARK MERUEÑAS, GMA NewsAugust 21, 2014 1:33pm
http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story...-criminal-code

Quote:
The revision of the 80-year-old Revised Penal Code has finally been completed after three years, and is now ready to be endorsed to Congress for passage into law.

Among the changes contained in the draft law are the removal of Spanish terms like reclusion perpetua, and the lowering of the age of criminal liability age from 15 to to 12 years old.


Quote:
Under the new code, criminal offenses would be divided into six levels—Levels 1 to 5 plus the gravest, which is punishable by life imprisonment.
No death penalty. :/

Visayan bloc to push amendments to 2015 budget


(snipped)

Negros Occidental Rep. Alfredo Benitez, leader of the 33-member bloc, cited in particular the Miscellaneous Personnel Benefits Fund (MPBF) that was increased by more than 100 percent, or from just P53.5 billion this year to P118.1 billion for 2015, eating up nearly five percent of the proposed expenditure program.

(snipped)

Benitez said the bloc will also push for amendments to increase the allocations for the Visayas and Mindanao in the proposed national budget, which he said remained lopsided in favor of Luzon.

“The government has not prioritized or given equitable share for the people of the Visayas and even Mindanao who are also Filipinos,” Benitez said.
