Alaws pa din! ABS-CBN franchise renewal bill not included in House panel’s upcoming hearing




There is no movement with respect to the renewal of the legislative franchise of ABS-CBN.
The bill or bills concerning its renewal of franchise is not one of those included in the agenda of the upcoming hearing of the House committee on legislative franchises amid earlier assurance from the House leadership.

News report from Politiko/Abante disclosed that not a single bill seeking to grant a fresh 25-year franchise to the Bas-CBN Kapamilya network is in the agenda of the legislative franchise panel chaired Palawan Rep. Franz “Chicoy” Alvarez.

Last month House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano hinted that the renewal of the TV network might be one of those bills that will be discussed by the Lower House this February, as the committee chaired by Alvarez is set to hear about 40 franchise renewal bills, all pending before his committee.
Among the franchise bills that are set to be tackled by Alvarez are those of the FBS Radio Network, Century Communications Marketing Center, Caceres Broadcasting Corporation, and Philand Communications Network Corporation.


Cayetano earlier gave an assurance that the Lower House “will have fair hearings that we will hear issues and also hear the replies.”

“We cannot promise you any decision until we finish the hearings to be fair with everyone,” said Cayetano.
