Since the Rice Tariffication became a law, it has been perceived that it will adversely impact on the farmers. Now, we are faced with this reality. Palay is being sold at the lowest unprecedented price at 7-10 pesos per kilo.

This anti-farmer law must be suspended or better yet repealed at the earliest possible time to dampen the sudden drop of rice prices leaving the plight of our farmers more miserable. In fact, a law that will support export of rice, instead of the incessant importation must be made to strengthen our agricultural economy.

A nation where its land is not only fertile or fecund but fallow, where the International Rice Research Institure (IRRI) is operating, and where farmers are hardworking and devoted, it is but all without sense if we become weak in developing our agriculture.

Therefore, let us support this move to REPEAL THE RICE TARIFFICATION LAW, INCREASE THE BUDGET OF AGRICULTURE NEXT TO EDUCATION, LEGISLATE SENSIBLE LAWS, not run-of-the-mill laws that reflect a lack of sincerity and knowledge of our Senators in the dispensation of their duties to the people more so to the poor among us.
