Go, PBBM pitch high agri growth
The proposed bill seeks to condone almost P58 billion worth of loans that Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries incurred in owning lands under the government’s Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program or from other agrarian reform programs
Echoing President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s vision to strengthen the agricultural sector, Senator Christopher “Bong” Go continues to advocate for the welfare and interests of Filipino farmers and agricultural workers.
The lawmaker co-sponsored Senate Bill 1850 or the proposed New Agrarian Emancipation Act, which was approved by the Senate on 9 March.
The proposed bill seeks to condone almost P58 billion worth of loans that Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries incurred in owning lands under the government’s Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program or from other agrarian reform programs.
“I co-sponsored Senate Bill 1850 or the New Agrarian Emancipation Act last 9 February. This is also the response to the call of President Bongbong Marcos in his first SoNA (State of the Nation Address) to help our agrarian reform beneficiaries so that we can also help achieve food security,” Go said in an ambush interview.
On Friday, 10 March, Go reminded fellow public servants at the national and local level to work together to uplift the lives of Filipinos in need as he attended the Philippine Councilors League National Convention at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Go then assured the convention that he remains dedicated to making sure that Filipinos, particularly the poor, get the necessary support they need from the government.
Go has been instrumental in various people-centered measures, such as the Republic Act 11463, otherwise known as the Malasakit Centers Act of 2019, which he principally authored and sponsored.
A day before that, the senator had his team distribute assistance to families whose houses were damaged by a fire incident in Barangay Baseco, Manila City In observance of Fire Prevention Month this March.
Go’s relief team distributed grocery packs, vitamins, snacks, and masks to 107 affected families. In addition, select individuals received new pairs of shoes, cellular phones, bicycles, and balls for basketball and volleyball.
