The House of Representatives will fast-track the approval of Bayanihan 3 as soon as it resumes session on May 17, Speaker Lord Allan Velasco said.
On Friday, the Committees on Economic Affairs and Social Services jointly approved a P405.6-billion Bayanihan 3 bill, which includes a P2,000-per-head aid for all Filipinos.
“As soon as we get back on May 17, we will fast-track the approval of Bayanihan 3,” Velasco was quoted in a statement as telling radio station dzME.
On Monday, the House Committee on Ways and Means approved Sections 34 and 35—which are revenue provisions—of the measure.
The bill only needs the House Committee on Appropriations’ approval before it can be reported to the plenary, according to the statement.
