Statement of Sen. Grace Poe

I am confident that the Senate will be supportive of this need for a whole-of-government approach through legislated additional executive powers to address a problem that has become a national concern. We are well aware of the need to expedite the process from procurement to acquisition of rights of way which invariably delay the start if not the completion of projects. I personally support the initiative but I would also like to find out as soon as possible the details or terms of the emergency powers they have in mind so we can hit the ground running as soon as session starts.
