Para sa bayan: Sharon Garin spends Sunday in Batasan
When the Speaker calls for a meeting, there’s no saying no.
Aambis Owa Party-list Rep. Sharon Garin went to report to Batasan Complex on Sunday, Aug. 5 despite the lovely weekend. It’s because Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo personally wanted to commandeer the technical working group for the tax package two on corporate income tax and incentives.
“Para sa bayan,” Garin said as if to relieve herself of the gruelling fact.
“7-hour meeting on a Sunday! 7 hours away from my son on a Sunday! Ay ambot ah,” she added, although she remained all smiles after the session.
