EO 32 (Pantawid Pasada Program)



WHEREAS, Administrative Order (AO) No. 6, Series of 2011 established the Inter-Agency Energy Contingency Committee (IECC) to undertake a comprehensive audit of the available resources of the Government, evaluate contingency plans, and submit reports to the Office of the President;

WHEREAS, in view of the Middle East and North African socio-political situation which triggered the high fuel prices, the IECC has determined that the public transport sector has been hardest hit by the oil price hikes given that oil is one of the major operating costs;

WHEREAS, the IECC found it imperative to adopt a contingency program to address the adverse effects of the oil price hikes on the prices of fuel, food and other basic commodities, particularly among the vulnerable sectors of the society, such as the public transport sector, the riding public, and consuming public;.

WHEREAS, the IECC unanimously recommends to provide assistance to the public transport sector to cushion the impact of high fuel prices and the resulting effects on the above-mentioned vulnerable sectors;

WHEREAS, based on the lECC’s studies, the Public Transport Assistance Program (PTAP) has been found to be the most equitable and efficient form of intervention to adopt as targeted relief to these vulnerable sectors; and,

WHEREAS, Section 8 of Presidential Decree No. 910, as amended by Republic Act No. 7638, provides that all fees, services and receipts from any or all sources including receipts from service contracts and agreements collected by the Department of Energy (DOE) shall form part of a Special Fund to be used to finance energy resource development and exploration programs and projects of the government, and for such other purposes as may be directed by the President.

NOW, THEREFORE, I BENIGNO S. AQUINO III, President of the Philippines, by virtue of the powers vested in me by law, do hereby order:

SECTION 1. The Public Transport Assistance Program – Pantawid Pasada. The “Public Transport Assistance Program” (PTAP) is hereby established which shall provide targeted relief to the public transport sector to cushion the impact of high fuel prices on the riding and consuming public. The Department of Energy (DOE) is hereby designated as the lead agency to implement the PTAP.

SECTION 2. Disbursement of the PTAP Funds. The PTAP shall be implemented in coordination with the IECC consistent with the members’ specific responsibilities pursuant to Section 3, AO No. 6 (s. 2011). Specifically, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), Department of Finance (DOF), and the Department of Energy (DOE) are jointly authorized to determine the monthly funding requirement of the PTAP. The PTAP shall partially subsidize the average consumption of the identified public transport group; Provided, That disbursement shall be made per franchisee and on the number of franchised units based on information to be provided by the DOTC through the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB): Provided further, That the DOE shall use smart cards to ensure the integrity of the disbursements.

Upon the recommendation of the IECC, the DOE may review the list of those entitled to the PTAP to include other sectors whose operations may be classified as sensitive to high oil prices, and it may also suspend the PTAP when it determines that the impact of fuel costs on these sectors no longer exists.

In the case of tricycles, the PTAP shall also subsidize a portion of their average consumption. The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) shall coordinate with Local Government Units (LGUs) for the joint implementation of the PTAP; Provided: That funding for PTAP for tricycles shall be subject to availability of counterpart funds of the respective LGUs.

After the first month of implementation, the DOE shall submit to the IECC a report on the status of the accomplishments of the PTAP. The IECC shall submit its recommendations to the President regarding the continued implementation of the program and its projected requirements.

SECTION 3. Funding Source of the PTAP. The initial funding requirements of the program shall be FOUR HUNDRED FIFTY MILLION PESOS (P450,000,000.00) which shall be sourced from the Special Account in the General Fund (SAGF) of the DOE under Fund 151, to be released by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) subject to the submission of the Bureau of the Treasury (BTr) Certification on the availability of deposited collections with the SAGF of the DOE and to existing laws and the usual government budgetary, accounting and auditing rules and regulations.

SECTION 6. Implementing Guidelines. The DOE as Lead, DBM, DILG, DOF, and DOTC shall promulgate the rules and regulations for the implementation of this Order within fifteen (15) days from effectivity hereof.

SECTION 7. Separability. If any provision of this Executive Order is declared invalid or unconstitutional, the other provisions unaffected shall remain valid and subsisting.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na.
