MANILA – Administration Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. has hailed the inclusion of his proposed amendments under the Senate-approved “Bayanihan to Recover as One Act” which seek to grant emergency subsidies for displaced low-income workers and overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

Revilla’s amendments inserted in the final version of Senate Bill No. 1564 a provision of “an emergency subsidy” to affected low-income households in areas under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) and to households with returned OFWs.

Revilla also introduced a new provision that aims to provide “one-month emergency subsidy to low-income households who are qualified but were not given subsidy as mandated under Section 4c of the Republic Act No. 11469” or the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.

“Alam at dama natin ang kanilang pangangailangan, at matutugunan ng panukalang ito ang mga iyon,” said Revilla.

Another amendment introduced by Revilla that was included in the final version of SB 1564 is a provision of COVID-19 special risk allowance for all public health workers on a monthly basis for every month that they have been serving during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Senate on Tuesday has secured the third reading of SB 1564, voting 22-1.

Revilla stressed that Filipinos right now are “dire need of more government assistance given the prevailing circumstances and limited resources of the country during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
