Enrile wants full scrutiny of BBL

SENATE Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile wasted no time and buckled down to work when he reported back to the upper chamber last Monday, August 24, four days after he was ordered released on bail by the Supreme Court. 

From the looks of it, the seasoned lawmaker will leave no stone unturned on matters pending before them in the Senate, especially on the issue on the controversial Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), currently known in the two Houses of Congress as the proposed Basic Law on the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region (BLBAR).
