[FYI in the Inquirer] Letter to the Editor: Congress reps should show up

From http://opinion.inquirer.net/45955/congress-reps-should-show-up.

We in the FOI Youth Initiative are extremely dismayed by the failure of our elected legislators to fulfill their duty to attend sessions of the House of Representatives.

Personal electoral concerns should never get in the way of their duty to pass relevant legislation like the freedom of information bill. When students skip classes, we miss out on the opportunity to learn. However, when legislators skip sessions, they shirk their mandate to serve.

No to further delays! Enact the FOI Law now!

FOI Youth Initiative,
