House panel’s TWG to flesh out crisis assistance bill

The House Committee on Social Services formed Monday a technical working group that would flesh out the provisions of the draft substitute bill seeking to institutionalize the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

The House panel, chaired by Quezon City 5th District Rep. Alfred Vargas created the TWG panel to sit down with concerned stakeholders to tackle the  measure, which substitutes House Bill No. 4469, principally authored by Camarines Norte 2nd district Rep. Marisol Panotes.

The TWG will be headed by Misamis Occidental 1st District Rep. Diego Ty. “We want to come up with the best possible version of this bill because the Chair and the committee find this bill as very, very important one specially during this time,” Vargas said.
