Bataan 2nd District Representative Abet Garcia on Friday announced that House Bill 4306, also known as the Revised Philippine Coast Guard Law, has been approved by the House Committee on Transportation.
Congressman Garcia said the bill aims to clarify the organizational structure and update the current pension system of the Philippine Coast Guard.
Representative Garcia believes that these two objectives are key to strengthening and improving the efficiency of their operations while providing better benefits to Philippine Coast Guard personnel, similar to those received by other uniformed personnel in the country.
The bill will now be formally endorsed to the Committee on Appropriations.
Representative Garcia assures the public that he will continue to push for bills that are beneficial to all.
