CONGRESSIONAL HEARING ON EXACT CHANGE BILL

CONGRESSIONAL HEARING ON EXACT CHANGE BILL CONGRESSIONAL HEARING ON EXACT CHANGE BILL On 11 Feb. 2014, PAGASA was invited to the public hearing on the Bill on Exact Change. Rep. Mark A. Villar, Chairman-Committee on Trade & Industry, heads the hearing on the proposal to penalize retailers who   do not give exact change in day-to-day operations. PAGASA’s Position Paper states that it feels that there is no strong need for such a law since implementation would be extremely difficult. (Proposed law says customer who is short-changed may complain with the DTI which will conduct investigations given prescription period.) First of all, producing a witness would be very difficult or even video captured on CCTV may not produce the evidence needed for alleged wrong-doing. PAGASA Paper suggests that it may be easier/cheaper to put the retailer to shame through the new forms of social media.  This would save the government precious time/ resources on such a  trite matter that can be effectively corrected through word-of-mouth reports/blogs (not verbatim; see actual Position Paper). The attending Congressmen were taken aback by STC’s comments and scolded him for such offensive remarks.  “What does PAGASA know about legislation to warrant an opinion of whether a piece of legislation is necessary or not?! Mr. Cua, you seem to be belittling the capabilities of this Committee!(again, not verbatim)”  STC had to apologize to the Committee Members but the Association is steadfast in its opinion regarding aforementioned Bill.  Edited picture shows the Lower House Committee on Trade & Industry at this Meeting.
