Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher de Venecia on July 28 said he wished President Rodrigo Duterte certified as urgent the P1.3-billion stimulus bill in his State of the Nation Address (SONA).
The Pangasinan politiko said the ARISE Philippines Bill provides a more comprehensive stimulus package for Filipinos.
“Hinahangad pa rin nating maipasa ang ARISE Philippines Bill na siyang bersyon ng stimulus bill ng Kamara, na nagkakahalaga ng P1.3 trillion,” De Venecia said.
Duterte certified as urgent the CREATE bill, which lowers corporate income tax from 30% to 25%, and the P160-billion “Bayanihan to Recover as One Act” in his SONA.
“Mas komprehensibo ito at makakatulong nang husto sa ating naghihikahos na ekonomiya para maging V-shape ang ating recovery,” he added.
