Di palaging kontra: Aquino willing to work with Duterte admin
Senator Bam Aquino on Friday said that he was able to prove that he is willing and able to work on reforms that the Duterte administration wants to pursue for the people’s welfare.
The opposition senator said that he fulfilled his role as principal sponsor to two major laws passed last year– the free college law and the free WIFI in public spaces law.
“We owe it to the Filipino people to work on reforms that will help uplift families, while opposing policies that will hurt our countrymen,” said Aquino, sponsor and co-author of the two main policies enacted into law during the Duterte administration.
These two major laws are the Republic Act 10931 or the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act and Republic Act 10929 or the Free Internet Access in Public Places Act.
“Mas mahalagang magtulungan para sa mga mahahalagang reporma na magsusulong ng kapakanan ng taumbayan, tulad ng dekalidad na edukasyon sa bansa,” he said.
During his eight-month stint as chairman of the Committee on Education, Aquino ushered in the passage of Republic Act 10931 or the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary.
He also worked for the passage of Republic Act 10929 or the Free Internet Access in Public Places Act as chairman of the Committee on Science and Technology.
