Kongreso, Binigyan na ng Provisional Franchise ang ABS-CBN!

Naghain ngayon ang Kongresista ng House Bill 6732 para bigyan ang ABS-CBN ng provisional franchise hanggang Oktubre 31, 2020 habang ang mamababang kapulungan ay nade-delibirate sa application ng Kapamilya network para sa 25-year franchise.

“Through this measure, we hope to strike a balance between the immediate needs of the people amid this crisis and the duty of Congress to ensure accountability to our present laws,” sabi sa panukalang batas.

“(The interim license will) give both the House of Representatives and the Senate [time] to hear the issues being raised for and against the renewal, and assess, with complete impartiality and fairness, whether or not the network shall be granted a franchise for another 25 years. We cannot, in good conscience, sweep the accusations under the rug,” dagdag pa sa explanatory note nng panukalang batas.

Sina Congressmen Neptali Gonzalez, Raneo Abu, Roberto Puno, Dan Fernandez, LRay Villafuerte Jr., Ferdinand Romualdez, at Jose Antonio Sy-Alvarado ang co-sponsored ng panukalang batas.

“Through this measure, we hope to strike a balance between the immediate needs of the people amid this crisis and the duty of Congress to ensure accountability to our present laws,” sabi sa panukalang batas.

Kamakailan lang ay naghain si Presidential son at Deputy Speaker Paolo “Pulong” Duterte ng resolusyon para tignan ng kongreso ang mga maaaring paglabag ng ABS-CBN sa napaso nitong legislative franchise. Kasamang naghain ni Congressman Duterte ng House Resolution 853 ay sina ACT-CIS party-list Rep. Eric Yap at Cavite Rep. Abraham Tolentino

“ABS-CBN Corporation’s operation of a pay-per-view channel through free-to-air signals despite being ordered by the National Telecommunication Commission to refrain from doing so, and await the issuance of appropriate guidelines, is in violation of the terms of its legislative franchise… By charging the public with its pay-per-view Kapamilya Box Office (KBO) channel through ABS-CBN TV Plus, it has been gaining huge profits at the expense of the public while using the air frequencies provided by the government for free,” sabi ng mga kongresista sa isang pahayag.
