The lawmaker said he wants to hear the position of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) on the vetoing of the said measure.

Villanueva said he is bewildered as to why the President vetoed the bill despite the series of consultations conducted by the labor department and the Chief Executive’s economic managers.

“We can’t wait to hear the officials from the administration, especially those who influence the President to veto the measure na ilahad sa atin kung ano yung reservation nila [to relay to us their reservations],” Villanueva added.

The Senate has yet to set the date of the hearing on the controversial bill. (with details from Nel Maribojoc) /mbmf
