Several House Bills are demanding the revocation of the power of the Philippine Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) to grant licenses to operate casinos and gaming clubs.

Proponents of these bills argue that PAGCOR bypassed the constitutional power of Congress to grant franchises to prospective casino operators and that PAGCOR lacked transparency in its license-granting operations.

Do you agree that PAGCOR's charter be clearly amended to remove its power to grant casino licenses by itself and, for greater accountability, only grant licenses to gaming franchises approved by Congress?
