Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco on Tuesday suggested that the Legislative-Executive Development Advisory Council (LEDAC) be convened at the earliest possible time so that both

the executive and the legislative branches can arrive at a common legislative agenda.

This is “similar to what we did during the 17th Congress,” said Velasco, who under a term-sharing deal with Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, will take over after 15 months.

“There must be an agreement among the Executive, the Senate, and the House of

Representatives on which bills in the CLA (common legislative agenda) will be prioritized so these can be enacted into laws at the soonest possible time,” he said.

As a majority legislator, he also reaffirmed his commitment to shepherding the President’s priority measures.

Velasco said he had already filed several bills that aim to support the President’s vision, such as:

1. Postponing the barangay elections to from May 2020 to October 2022

2. Institutionalizing the ROTC

3. Rightsizing of government bureaucracy

“As an advocate of renewable energy and energy efficiency, I am one with the President

in urging the Department of Energy to fast track projects involving renewable energy

sources,” he said.
