Camarines Norte Rep. Josie Tallado has supported the speakership bid of her partymate at the PDP-Laban, Marinduqe Rep. Lord Allan Velasco.

“Isang maligayang pag-bati sa ating kapartido sa PDP-Laban, Speaker Lord Allan Velasco, na kapartido din ng ating mahal na Presidente Rodrigo Roa Duterte,” she said.

“Si Speaker Velasco ay inihalal ngayon bilang Speaker ng House of Representatives ng mayorya ng miyembro ng Kamara,” added the solon.

Tallado also vowed to support the swift passage of the General Appropriations Bill for 2021.

“Kasama din natin, si Cong. Toots Panotes ng Ikalawang Distrito ng Camarines Norte at 184 pa na mambabatas na handang handa muling buksan at lahukan ang special session bukas sa plenaryo para maisulong ang ating panukalang General Appropriation Bill,” Tallado said.

Velasco was elected today by 186 lawmakers to replace Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano as their House Speaker.

“Prayoridad po natin na matapos ang budget para matugunan ang pangangailangan ng bansa lalo na ngayong panahon ng COVID-19 kung saan maraming kababayan natin ang nawalan ng hanap-buhay at negosyo,” Tallado also said.

“Makakaasa po kayo na tuloy tuloy lang po ang ating pagserbisyo at paganap ng ating tungkulin,” she added.
