Bacolod City Representative Greg Gasataya wants senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWDs) exempted from paying travel tax.

Gasataya said his proposed measure aims to reduce the financial burdern of senior citizens and PWDs.

He explained that House Bill No. 7964 will also induce “a more satisfactory life” for them.

“Those who have less in life should have more in law. While there are exciting benefits for senior citizens and PWDs provided for by law, the state can further develop policies that would induce a more satisfactory life for them,” Gasataya said.

“As many senior citizens rely solely on pension and PWDs on their families’ income, it is imperative for the state to provide them with as much privileges as possible,” he added.
