President wants swift passage of PH tax reform program

/ 06:47 PM July 24, 2017

President Rodrigo Duterte has pressed the Senate to pass the comprehensive tax reform program.

“The fate of tax reform is now in the hands of the Senate,” Duterte said in his second State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Monday.


“I call on the Senate to support my tax reform in full and to pass it without haste,” he said.

Duterte then taunted some senators, including Senator Sonny Angara, who has been pushing for changes in the Duterte administration’s proposed comprehensive tax reform program, for not applauding when he raised the immediate passage of the bill.


The President told Angara: “Bantay ka lang sa election, tignan mo.”  JPV
