JR Lopez Gonzales 5:32 AM 2


Here's the list of Top 10 Senators with the most number of bills filed in the 15th Congress. Note that the Senate will adjourn on June 9 and will resume session on July 25.












10 - Juan Miguel Zubiri — 90 (56 bills, 34 resos)









9 - Edgardo Angara — 117 (102 bills, 15 resos)













8 - Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. — 150 (126 bills, 24 resos)
 











7 - Francis Escudero — 154 (128 bills, 26 resos)

6 - Loren Legarda — 198 (137 bills, 61 resos)













5 - Lito Lapid — 239 (179 bills, 60 resos)



4 - Antonio Trillanes IV — 304 (292 bills, 12 resos)











3 - Manuel “Manny” Villar Jr. with 539 (395 bills, 144 resolutions)


2 - Jinggoy Estrada - 581 files measures (553 bills, 27 resolutions)
















1 - Miriam Defensor-Santiago – 882 measures (758 bills and 124 resolutions)



Others who failed to enter the Top 10 list include: #11 Ralph Recto — 88 (50 bills, 38 resos), #12 Pia Cayetano (74: 48 bills, 25 resos), #13 and #14 Franklin Drilon — (45 (23 bills, 22 resos) and Vicente Sotto III — 45 (10 bills, 35 resos), #15 Francis Pangilinan — 43 (15 bills, 28 resos), #16 and #17 Juan Ponce Enrile — 40 (18 bills, 22 resos) and Teofisto Guingona III — 40 (13 bills, 27 resos), #18 Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. — 39 (20 bills, 19 resos), #19 Gregorio Honasan II — 34 (13 bills, 21 resos), #20 Sergio Osmena III — 33 (14 bills, 19 resos), #21 Panfilo Lacson — 31 (31 bills), #22 Alan Peter Cayetano — 20 (7 bills, 13 resos), and #23 Joker Arroyo — 17 (17 resos).

In an interview by GMANews, Sen. Santiago said that, she “worked (her) ass off”. She adds,

“A public hearing on a controversial issue generates a lot of publicity, but usually the result is merely a recommendation to the Ombudsman. By contrast, internet research is very quiet and solitary, but one bill could make a difference in the lives of people”.
On a personal note however, it is more relevant to compare turnover of bills that became a law. This means the initial effort of drafting the idea was successful enough to be supported by everybody, thus becoming a law. Here you can see the real effort, because the political will and leadership is more evident but I believe the better presentation is placing laws vis-à-vis the bills. Only then will we know who makes the most sensible laws of all.
