Senator and VP candidate Gringo Honasan on his platform, taxes, BBL and FOI

With almost 20 years of legislative experience, it comes as no surprise that Senator and now vice presidential candidate Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan is well-versed in a wide variety of national issues. 

During the four times he was elected in the Senate since 1995, Honasan has been one of the country’s most productive lawmakers having authored or co-authored several significant landmark legislations such as the Clean Air Act of 1999, the Clean Water Act, Republic Act 8368 that decriminalized squatting, the National Security Policy, the Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 and the POGI bill or as most people know it, the Freedom of Information or People’s Ownership of Government Information Act of 2012.

“There is also the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Law which is being applied whenever calamities like typhoons and earthquake strike. There’s the Firearms and Explosives laws; Anti-Drunk Driving, three extensions of the Agrarian Reform Law to address the needs of the agricultural sector, the most oppressed sector in the country,” he added during a recent interview with OrangeTV magazine.

“As far as peace and order is concerned, I also added several amendments to the Dangerous Drugs Act of 1995. As for the peace process in Mindanao, I am also the author of the mini martial plan in Mindanao.”

With all these achievements, it still comes as a surprise to many why the good senator has decided to pursue the office of the Vice President which is generally perceived as “a president in waiting” or basically a “spare tire.”
