House Bill 6195: Withdrawn by Rep. Trisha Bonoan-David

A copy of Rep. Bonoan-David's letter to the Committee on Rules.

Trisha Bonoan-David submitted a letter last June 18, 2012 to the office of Committee on Rules headed by Cong. Neptali Gonzales II, indicating that she is withdrawing sponsorship of the House Bill 6195 which she files last May 17, 2012.
On her letter, Rep. Bonoan-David says she withdraws the bill "after some careful considerations on the provisions of the bill".
The bill has received wide criticism in the social media, and a strong opposition from Migrante-Middle East. John Leonard Monterona, M-ME regional coordinator, says that Rep. Bonoan-David’s proposal is ill-advised.


My Verdict

Nice move from this lady solon. It's a win-win solution here. Our OFW's was saved from paying $50 OWWA contribution hike and Rep. Bonoan-David gains her constituents trust by playing that she hears what the masses says.
But I think, by filling this House Bill 6195 in the first place, only demonstrates how incensitive and detached she is from the common Filipino.

  1. I'm not familiar with the bill lawrence.. but as what your verdict says regarding about this withdrawal and that $50 OWWA contribution hike... it seems that it has a positive impact...
    thanks for sharing my friend

  2. Sounds like a good decision.

  3. This is really interesting…

  4. Definitely a good call! Following :D

  5. I am not quite knowledgeable about what the real deal regarding such bill. However, I think withdrawing it for further review and revision is the best decision to do at the moment. Our OFW brothers and sisters are not living a life of "greener pastures" from where they are right now. Most often than not, thriving in a foreign lang is something they have to battle out each day. That $50 hike won't help them in any way, in my most honest opinion.

    Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts about this. I hope you can provide us updates regarding future developments.

  6. this woman is not trusted for the filipino people, now she is playing the game, for withdrawing her bill. I hope the next election she never win again. wake up filipino...
