Senator Edgardo J. Angara lauded the Senate's passage on Second Reading yesterday of the bill creating the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).
Angara, Chair of the Senate Committee on Science and Technology, is the main author and sponsor of Senate Bill No. 50 (under Committee Report No. 53), calling primarily for the reorganization of the communications-related agencies under the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) into a separate agency.
