House Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta last Wednesday said that Speaker Alan Peter “Compañero” Cayetano received positive trust and approval ratings in the Pulse Asia survey that was conducted last September because of his productive leadership in the 18th Congress. The House expeditiously passed the 2020 General Appropriations Bill as well as two priority measures of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte-- the proposed Corporate Income Tax and Incentives Rationalization Act (CITIRA) and the Passive Income and Financial Intermediary Taxation Act (PIFITA). He also noted how Speaker Cayetano built harmonious rapport with the House Members which resulted in a smoother and faster legislative process. Marcoleta said through its efficient performance under the leadership of Speaker Cayetano, the House is able to serve better the Filipino people.
