Transcript of Ambush Interview with Senate President
Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III

On tax brackets

SPKP:Yung P500,000 threshold for the highest income bracket, gawin mong P1.5 million yun. Di automatic na those earning P500,000 to P1.5 million are now at the highest tax bracket will now fall to the second highest or third highest tax bracket, so automatically mababa na yung tax rate nila.

On whether Senate President Pimentel and Sen. Alan Cayetano has talked to each other

SPKP:Wala pa po si Senator Alan. Hindi pa, kasi nag-Sona kahapon. Yes, I shook his hand (at the House of Representatives). Sabi niya congratulations.

On committee chairmanships

SPKP:Eto, we will do it. We will do it now, titingnan natin ang pacing natin. Ganito. Business can be referred to the standing committees, the standing committees should be constituted at the soonest possible time, and the chairmen can start hearing. Kasi we have a three day notice rule, kaya next week na yun pagka-constitute. Pag kuha nila ng kanilang work load, we can constitute.
