0 280

Camarines Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado went back in action at the House of Representatives to continue his unfinished business.

Bordado returned to the lower chamber with a perfect attendance since the start of the 17th Congress in 2016.

On the first day of session after the lower House’s break, Bordado immediately attended a Committee on Local Government hearing where he shared Naga City’s kind of governance.

“I am back here in the Batasan (logging 212 out of 212 session days for a PERFECT ATTENDANCE RECORD since July 2016), sharing with the members of the Committee on Local Government the Naga City experience in the field of participatory local governance,” Bordado shared.

Bordado, a first term congressman, also touted his achievements.

“But of course, it’s not just about attendance. As of 10 October 2018, I had authored/co-authored 183 bills, 10 of which eventually became major national laws including the UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO QUALITY TERTIARY EDUCATION and the NATIONAL SCHOOL FEEDING PROGRAM, among others,” he said.

Bordado also said that he has been the voice of his constituents at the House of Representatives, specially regarding some “critical issues.”

“More than anything else, though, I have always made it a point to voice out–right there at the plenary hall of the Batasan– the concerns of my constituents regarding such critical issues as DEATH PENALTY, HUMAN RIGHTS, MARTIAL LAW, and EXCISE TAXES ON PETROLEUM PRODUCTS, to name a few,” he said
