MANILA, Philippines- The leaders of the Senate and House officially transmitted this Tuesday the copies of the proposals on SIM registration and postponement of the 2022 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.
Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri and House Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez submitted the first bill approved by the 19th Congress to Presidential Legislative Liaison Office Secretary Mark Llandro “Dong” Mendoza for the approval and signature of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
“Hopefully these first enrolled bills will now turn into our first two laws. Nakakabuo na tayo ng maganda at effective na working relationship with the House, and if our bicameral sessions for these two bills are anything to go by, then I think we can all expect to have a very active and productive 19th Congress,” pahayag ni Zubiri.
The ceremonial signing ceremony was held yesterday by Zubiri and Romualdez. Senate Majority Leader Joel Villanueva, Senators Grace Poe, Imee Marcos and JV Ejercito, House Majority Leader Mannix Dalipe, Representatives Toby Tiangco and Yoyette Ferrer were also present.
Zubiri announced that the President is scheduled to try two proposals this Tuesday.
“We need this law. Text and online scams are too common. Scammers keep on finding creative ways to trick people, and we can’t stop or even trace them because they are anonymous. New scam, new SIM, that’s easy,” said the senator.
The proposed SIM Registration Act seeks to end platform crime including text and online scams in controlling the sale and use of the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) by imposing mandatory registration on end-users.
Meanwhile, another proposal is pushing the move to 2022 BSKE 2023 on the last Monday of October 2023. RNT/SA
