Senate to train neophytes like Bato – Lacson

May. 15, 19 | 7:52 pm

The Senate leadership will provide lectures on law making for neophyte senators like Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, veteran Sen. Panfilo Lacson said.

“We will be meeting with the new members and give them some tips or lectures as was done to my batch in 2001,” Lacson said in a statement.

Lacson was responding to Dela Rosa, who admitted in an interview that he needs lectures on law-making and other responsibilities of senators to avoid being a “laughing stock” in the upper house.

“Is there a seminar or training where I could learn on how to make laws? What’s our work in the Senate? If there’s any, I will take that opportunity so I could learn. What is really the job of a senator? What do I need to prepare?” Dela Rosa told CNN Philippines.

Lacson told Dela Rosa not to worry as he would take him under his wing.

“Bato need not worry. He will undergo another period of ‘plebehood’ under my supervision since we are both in the majority bloc,” the veteran lawmaker said, referring to the initial training for new cadets.

Both Lacson and Dela Rosa served as director general of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and were alumni of the Philippine Military Academy.

Senators also have an oversight function. They conduct investigations “in aid of legislation.”

As the head of the PNP, Dela Rosa was one of the officials that senators grilled during the Senate inquiry on the hundreds of killings under the Duterte administration’s war on drugs. (Rappler photo)
