The House of Representatives apprived additional incentives to Filipino gold medalists in the 30th Southeast Asian Games.

The chamber adopted House Resolution No. 568, which seeks to collect and deduct the individual pledges of congressmen from their January 2020 salary for the purpose of granting additional incentives to the gold medalists on top of the incentives granted by law.

The resolution was mainly authored by Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, who currently chairs the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc).

"The leaders and members of the House of Representatives in the 18th Congress stand in solidarity with the Team Philippines throughout the competition in their quest to capture the gold medals in their respective sports, and to bring honor and pride to the Filipino people," the resolution read.

“As a concrete manifestation of the commonality of the goal to bring honor and pride to the country, the leaders and members of the House of Representatives deem it proper to deduct individual pledges from their salaries from January 2020, as additional incentives to Filipino gold medal winners in the 30th SEA Games," it added.

The resolution also commended the athletes for bringing great honor and pride to the Filipino people.

As of December 4, the Filipino athletes have garnered a total of 104 medals -- 52 golds, 33 silvers and 19 bronzes.
