A joint resolution of Congress may be the key to fund the hike of nurses


Metro Manila (October 20, 2019 )- the key to funding the wage hike for government nurses is a congress joint resolution, said the House Leader. Anakalusugan party-list Rep. Michael Defensor said that the nurses employed by the government starting pay of P30,531.

A joint resolution is needed to sign by the President if approved by the chambers of Congress. And it has a force and effect of law if approved by the chief executive. Defensor said that Congress is ready to implement the salary hike but how best to do it.

President Duterte is pushing a new Salary Standardization Law of all government nurses. At least eight proposed laws seeking to increase nurses’ salaries are pending before the House.

The House committee and the MalacaƱang have to ascertain the availability of funds through the Department of Budget to be able to pay an increase of government nurses.
