Despite the threat of flood and heavy rainfall in Metro Manila brought about by tropical depression Maring, members of the House of Representatives responded to the call of duty by attending the whole-day plenary session on Tuesday to finish the deliberation on the 2018 National Budget. Rep. Karlo Alexei Nograles (1st District, Davao City) (upper right photo), chairman of the committee on appropriations, led the debate on general principles and provisions while House Minority Leader Danilo Suarez led the turno en contra. At the end of the debates, House Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas spearheaded the viva voce voting on the bill, and thereafter presiding officer Deputy Speaker Eric Singson declared the "Ayes have it."
