JR Lopez Gonzales 5:13 PM 0


With the data coming from the Senate Legislative Bills and Index Service for the 15th Congress (as of February 7, 2013), here are the Top 10 Senators who filed the most bills or resolutions.

It is of importance to note, however, that only 26 bills became law. Among these were the GOCC Governance Act, Cybercrime Prevention Act, Sin Tax Reform Act, and the Reproductive Health Act.
  

10 - Sen. Ralph Recto - 146
(out of this, he principally authored 59 bills and 30 resolutions)



9 - Sen. Ed Angara - 183
(out of this, he principally authored  130 bills and 6 resolutions)

 

8 - Sen. Bong Revilla - 206
(out of this, he principally authored 135 bills and 15 resolutions)

 

7 - Sen. Loren Legarda - 297
(out of this, she principally authored 149 bills and 87 resolutions)

 

6 - Sen. Chiz Escudero - 306
(out of this, he principally authored  156 bills and 9 resolutions)





5 - Sen. Lito Lapid - 381
(out of this, he principally authored 183 bills and 126 resolutions)

 

4 - Sen. Sonny Trillanes - 388
(out of this, he principally authored 327 bills and 17 resolutions)

 

3 - Sen. Jinggoy Estrada - 672
(out of this, he principally authored 595 bills and 21 resolutions)

 
2 - Sen. Manny Villar - 717
(out of this, he principally authored  432 bills and 212 resolutions)


1 - Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago - 1090
(out of this, she principally authored 838 bills and 208 resolutions)


Runner –ups, arranged from ranks 11 to 24, are the following:

11 - Sen. Pia Cayetano - 127

12 - Sen. Tito Sotto - 117

13 - Sen. Franklin Drilon - 116

14 - Sen. TG Guingona III - 99

15 - Sen. Migz Zubiri - 97

16 - Sen. Gringo Honasan - 85

17 - Sen. Bongbong Marcos - 84

18 - Sen. Kiko Pangilinan - 80

19 - Sen. Ping Lacson - 79

20 - Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile - 70

21 - Sen. Serge Osmeña - 63

22 - Sen. Koko Pimentel** - 54

23 - Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano - 45

24 - Sen. Joker Arroyo - 31



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.

Filing a bill is easy but making useful and helpful bills is more important. It is not on who has written more bills but on who has written bills that can be benefited by all, if not many.



** Pimentel was only able to assume his post on Aug. 8, 2011 during the second regular session.
