Bagong komite para sa PWD serbisyo paiigtingin

PAG-IIBAYUHIN ni Rep. Ma. Lourdes “Marilou” Arroyo ang mga serbisyo para sa persons with disability (PWD) matapos siyang italaga bilang chairperson ng bagong Special Committee on PWDs.

Ayon kay Arroyo ng 5th District, Negros Occidental, pagtutuunan niya ng pansin ang lahat ng panukalang mag kaugnayan sa kapakanan ng mga PWD.

“The PWDs sector is one of the most overlooked sectors in the country. For such a long time, PWDs have been enduring difficulty compounded by additional setbacks in the built-in infrastructure of our civic and social services that have not progressed enough to include PWDs and take into account their needs. This committee that I will be heading will seek to implement measures that can be taken to address factors pertaining to PWDs that have been overlooked in the past, and guarantee that the well-being of PWDs will be prioritized,” ayon kay Arroyo naa kapatid ng dating First Gentleman Mike Arroyo.

Nauna nang naghain si Arroyo ng House Bill 2224 o ang “PWD-friendly and Safe Transportation Act” na naglalayong ayusin ang PWD-friendly transportation program upang pagtuunan ng pansin ang mga pangangailangan nila bilang commuters.

Ayon sa panukala, lahat ng public utility vehicles (PUV) operators and owners ay inuutusang ayusin ang kanilang mga sasakyan upang mabigyan ng maayos na rampa at lugar para sa mga wheelchair at iba pang kagamitan ang mga PWD.
