PingBills | Pagrebisa sa Building Code, Isinulong ni Ping vs Lindol, Kalamidad

Sa hangaring mapaghandaan ang mga darating pang kalamidad gaya ng malalakas na lindol, mapaminsalang bagyo at baha, inihain ni Senador Panfilo Lacson ang panukalang naglalayong itaas o palakasin ang building safety standards ng bansa.

Pangunahing layunin ng Senate Bill 1239 na isailalim sa masinsinang pag-araal ang 1977 National Building Code of the Philippines na magpahanggang ngayon ay hindi pa nagkakaroon ng pagbabago.

“Experience tells us that there is an urgent need to strengthen the overall policy on how buildings and structures are built in the country. Not to mention the country’s geographical location along the boundary of major tectonic plates and at the center of the typhoon belt, coupled by its socially and economically vulnerable population, it becomes even more imperative to review our four-decade-old National Building Code,” paliwanag ni Lacson.

PingBills | For Disaster Resiliency: Lacson Bill Strengthens Building Safety Standards

The devastation and loss of life caused by recent calamities, such as the magnitude-6.9 earthquake that struck Davao del Sur last Dec. 15, drive home the need to strengthen building safety standards in the Philippines.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this as he filed Senate Bill 1239 to help protect the public from the effects of natural and man-made disasters, while giving the antiquated 1977 National Building Code a much-needed update.

“Experience tells us that there is an urgent need to strengthen the overall policy on how buildings and structures are built in the country. Not to mention the country’s geographical location along the boundary of major tectonic plates and at the center of the typhoon belt, coupled by its socially and economically vulnerable population, it becomes even more imperative to review our four-decade-old National Building Code,” Lacson said in his bill.

Alinsunod sa panawagan ng namumuno sa hudikatura, naghain ng panukalang batas si Senador Panfilo Lacson para bumuo ng Philippine Judicial Marshal Service na magbigigay ng proteksiyon sa hukom, opisyales at maging mga kawani ng sektor na ito.

“This legislative measure seeks to create a Philippine Judicial Marshal Service under the control and jurisdiction of the Supreme Court whose primary function is to protect, safeguard, watch over, provide security, and ensure the safety of justices, judges, court officials and personnel, and the various halls of justice, courthouses and other court buildings and properties all over the country,” paliwwanag ni Lacson sa pagsasampa ng Senate Bill 1209.

Ani Lacson, hindi bababa sa 31 ang napapatay na miyembro ng hudikatura sa nakalipas na dalawang dekada, lima sa mga ito ay naganap sa Duterte administration.

Nais ni Senador Panfilo Lacson na muling ituro sa bagong henerasyon ng Pilipino ang respeto, paggalang at ibang mabubuting asal na nangangambang mawawala na dahil sa pagsulpot ng high-tech at online na gadgets.

Ang hakbang ni Lacson ay nakapaloob sa Senate Bill 1185 na naglalayong palakasing muli ang pagtuturo ng good manners and right conduct (GMRC) sa mga batang mag-aaral.

“Taking into account the Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao curriculum of the Department of Education’s K-12 program, the Good Manners and Right Conduct curriculum is hereby institutionalized and shall be designated as a separate subject to be taught in Kindergarten to Grade 3 levels,” ayon kay Lacson.

PingBills | To Balance Technology’s Influence: Lacson Bill Aims to Teach GMRC to Filipino Youths

High-tech gadgets and devices may teach new things to many Filipino children and youths, but good manners and right conduct may not be among them.

On this note, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson filed a bill aiming to make sure Filipinos learn good manners and right conduct during their formative years from Kindergarten to Grade 3.

“In order to create a balance, it is necessary for our educational system to aid the Filipino family in imparting good manners and right conduct to our young students by its inclusion in the curriculum at the beginning of their school years,” Lacson said in Senate Bill 1185, as he noted how modern technology threatens to impact the social skills and manners of Filipino youth.

He added Education Secretary Leonor Briones has warned “technology without good manners is a disaster” as empathy, compassion and humanity cannot be learned in an “online or technology-driven pedagogy.”

PingBills | Senate Bill 993, Repealing Republic Act 10592

“While the purpose of granting good conduct time allowance (GCTA) is laudable in decongesting the overpopulated prison cells, it may give more logical reason to abandon such purpose if the magnitudes of its aftermath are prejudicial for many of the victims and their relatives who are seeking justice.” (co-author with Senators Gordon and Sotto)
