"Malapit na kami matapos sa pag-repaso at pag-review ng budget. Bakit mabilis? Kasi dinamihan namin ang subcommittees. We have 9, headed by 9 vice chairpersons. Pang-sampu ako. So we are running on 10 pistons. When it comes to finetuning the budget, the Senate is a V-10 engine. Kaya when I assumed the chairmanship , ang sabi ko if we want to turbocharge our performance , then let us create more sub-committees. We have Monday to Friday hearings. Bukas nga 6 agencies, major departments lahat ang bubusisihin : DND, Judiciary, DA etc. Kapag multitasking, hindi lang mabilis, masinop at masinsin pa. But we don’t sacrifice tough scrutiny for speed. When we come back from our recess on the first week of November, plenary na kami. So it will be a working recess for us. Sarado ang showroom ng Senado, meaning the plenary, pero ang workshops, ang committees , like Finance, will be working."
