Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian
Chairman – Senate Committee on Energy
As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Committee on Economic Affairs during the 17th Congress, he steered both committees with a goal in mind—to protect and empower the Filipino consumers and support small and medium businesses to generate jobs.
He strove toward the passage of several key measures aimed at fostering a competitive, investor–friendly, and red tape–free environment in the energy sector and in the Philippine economy. His goal is to spark an economic renaissance in the entire country by crafting measures that would promote robust competition, encourage investments, and conduct business in the Philippines easier.
He has successfully steered the passage of pro–consumer legislations that have been signed into law. Among the laws he has authored are the Murang Kuryente Act, Electric Cooperatives Emergency and Resiliency Fund Act, Energy Virtual One
Stop Shop Act, Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act, Anti–Obstruction of Power Lines Act, Philippine Innovation Act, Community–based Monitoring Systems Act, Islamic Banking Act, and the Mobile Number Portability Act wherein consumers now have the freedom to change their mobile numbers without the need to change mobile service providers or subscription plans.
Currently, his bills under the Energy Committee, the Extension of Lifeline Rate subsidy in electricity bill for low–income households and the LPG Act, which aims to remove unsafe tanks from circulation—are now close to becoming laws.
Indeed, his commitment to genuine public service continues to drive him in pursuing his promising vision of a better Philippines.
