SPEAKER Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez on Wednesday cited the legislative milestones the House of Representatives (HRep) achieved before the Second Regular Session of the 19th Congress adjourned sine die. 

Romualdez said the bills passed promoting national security, economic stability, social welfare, and environmental protection reflected the HRep’s commitment to the welfare and prosperity of the Filipino people.

“Malinaw po ang misyon nating lahat. Kapayapaan sa buong bansa. Seguridad sa mga komunidad. Masiglang ekonomiya. Maunlad na kabuhayan para sa lahat,” he said

He also vowed to continue advancing critical legislations that will realize President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s dream of providing a decent home for every Filipino family

Romualdez also expressed gratitude to the House members, Senior Deputy Speaker Aurelio Gonzales Jr., Deputy Speakers, Majority Leader Manuel Jose Dalipe and Minority Leader Marcelino Libanan, committee chairpersons, House secretariat, congressional staff, contractual employees, janitorial services, security personnel and the media for their contributions to the sessions’ success

Libanan reported that the House, since the inception of the 19th Congress, was able to pass 221 measures of national significance and 520 local house bills (HBs). 

Dalipe took note of the 12,275 legislative measures filed in the 19th Congress, broken down into 10,479 HBs and 1,795 House Resolutions (HRs). Of these outputs, 61 HBs were signed into law, with six national bills and nine local measures awaiting the President’s approval. Another 746 approved legislative measures are pending in the Senate.

The HRep, as articulated in HR 1747, also commended Speaker Romualdez for his exceptional, competent, and effective leadership of the House of Representatives during the Second Regular Session of the 19th Congress.

Finally, the HRep also adopted House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 26, providing for the sine die adjournment of the Second Regular Session of the 19th Congress of the Philippines.
