Speaker vows bills’ passage despite break for fight


By Leila Salaverria
Philippine Daily Inquirer

WHILE PLANNING TO BE IN LAS Vegas by Nov. 14 to watch Manny Pacquiao’s latest fight with ringside seats no less, Speaker Prospero Nograles said the House of Representatives is sure to pass the 2010 budget on third and final reading when the session resumes this week.

The House is also expected to pass on second reading the contentious right of reply bill and the reproductive health bill.

The reproductive health bill, which seeks to promote both natural and artificial birth control methods through government programs, has been the subject of plenary deliberations for many months and remains as contentious as ever.

The Catholic Church is staunchly opposed to the measure since it believes that contraceptives would induce abortion, an argument denied by the bill’s proponents.
