HOUSE Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano insisted that ABS-CBN’s franchise bills will undergo a thorough investigation into the House.
Cayetano said this is the only way to clear the people of all issues facing the giant network.
Now with COVID-19 in the country, House Speaker Cayetano said their priorities in the proposals also changed.
Priority bills include pro economy, pro-people, and focus on other government services such as health, tourism, construction, and more.
But despite the situation, Cayetano said they still do not forget their responsibilities regarding ABS-CBN’s pending franchise bills.
“As Congress re-aligns its priorities towards building a different and better tomorrow by passing urgent legislation that would maximize emerging socio-economic opportunities for our people; including but not limited to the services, health, education, agriculture, tourism, construction, and manufacturing sectors, we remain cognizant of our responsibility in addressing the pending issue of the ABC-CBN franchise,” said Cayetano.
The House leader insists that the investigation into the ABS-CBN franchise bill will be under close scrutiny.
This is the only way he said to clear the people of whether the franchise should be given back to the company.
“Ultimately, it is only through a fair, impartial, comprehensive, and thorough presentation and appreciation of the evidence that we can clear the air,” he said.
