The money received by the employees of the government thru the Cost of Living Allowance will be increased.
This is if Senate Bill 286, authored by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, will be legislated. SB 286 seeks to assist gov’t employees in their everyday expenses. Under the said bill, all national and local gov’t officials, including soldiers and police, will receive an additional Php 5,000 per month.
This is aside from the regular allowance already received by government personnel.
According to Trillanes, Chairman of Committee on Civil Service, Government, Reorganization, and Professional Regulation, the proposal will aid gov’t employees who are burdened by the increase in the price of basic commodities.
