Toby Tiangco says this is the biggest change at the House under Fariñas
Change has definitely come under the Duterte administration.
Navotas Rep. Tobias Tiangco has been in Congress long enough to see the chamber morph under different Presidents. But it’s only under Pres. Rodrigo Duterte and his staunch ally Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas when he saw a daily quorum.
this is the only Congress i have been member that calls the roll EVERYDAY exactly 4pm, has a quorum every session day. credit @Rudyfarinas

Under the rules, any plenary session cannot start unless at least half of the congressmen are present. Now, it’s not a problem anymore.
