Excited much?

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon had a matter of procedure to settle with Buhay Party-List Rep. Lito Atienza, who said this early that he will question the passage of the divorce bill at the House committee level.

Atienza, who has claimed that divorce was unconstitutional for violating the sanctity of marriage, expressed strong opposition to the measure. But Biazon thinks his plan is out of line.

“A bill is a proposal undergoing the process of legislation. Would the SC have jurisdiction to rule as unconstitutional a legislative proposal?,” the politiko said.
