MANILA, Philippines – After  a three-month long break, the  Senate  will resume its session on Wednesday afternoon.

Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto  III  was  confident that they could muster a quorum  even if  some senators are reportedly still out of the  country.

“Yes, I’m sure,” Sotto said in a text message when asked about the presence of a quorum  when they  resume session at 3:00  p.m.

An advisory issued by Sotto’s office last week listed at least 36 measures which are up for third reading while some measures were scheduled for interpellation or sponsorships on the floor.

The bicameral committee report on the proposed amendments to the Juvenile Justice Law might   be ratified before Congress adjourns sine die on Thursday, Senator  Franklin Drilon said in a radio  interview.

Drilon is expected to succeed incumbent Senate President  Juan Ponce-Enrile when the 16th Congress opens  in July.
