Palace welcomes House decision to recall enrolled budget bill
Malacanang on Monday welcomed the move of the House of Representatives to recall their version of the proposed 2019 national budget. This, after Senator Panfilo Lacson said that Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has agreed to withdraw the House version of the P3.75-trillion 2019 budget today. Lacson added that he received a call from Rep. Ronaldo Zamora on Sunday, informing him of the House leadership’s decision. “We welcome it. We welcome that they finally settled their differences. So, we hope that they will be submitting the enrolled bill and for the President to go over it and sign it if it conforms with the Constitution,” presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters.

The department has issued a final rule that will put more money in the pockets of middle class workers – or give them more free time.
