House Deputy Speaker and Batangas representative Vilma Santos-Recto said that it’s about time for the House of Representatives to tackle the pending ABS-CBN franchise renewal bill.

“It’s about time. I think House committee on franchise should once and for all hear the renewal ng franchise of ABS-CBN. They should hear the other side,” Santos said on Saturday.

The ‘Star for All Seasons’ and lawmaker was among the sponsors of the bill that seeks to renew the network’s franchise.

House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano previously said that the franchise renewal is not urgent and assured that the network can still operate beyond March 2020.

About 11,000 employees will be affected should the network shut down its operations.

“Sa Senado, 2 isyu ang pag-uusapan du’n, ‘yung rehabilitation ng Taal victims dito sa lalawigan ng Batangas at ‘yung prangkisa ng ABS-CBN,” Senator Ralph Recto said.
