CONGRESS ONLINE POLL

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.
