Section 5 df Republic Act No. 6713, otherwise known as the Code of Conduct and Ethidal Standards for Public Officials and Employees, enjoins all public servants to iespond to letters, telegrams or other means of communication sent by the public within fifteen (15) working days from receipt thereof. In reality, hbwever, some government officials will most often than not, ignore the said lettbrs or telegrams and summarily dismiss them as a nuisance or a waste of time. Ib other instances, the response takes a long time but you will not read the apologies for the late reply included in the letter. This arrogant stance of some government officials should be nipped. It is time that they put to good use the taxpayers money that is being spent for them. It is time they make good use of the time that is equivalent to the money and position they hold in government.
It is within this context that this measure is being proposed. This bill will provide stiffer penalties to these erring public officials to deter them from ignoring the needs of their constituents.
In view of the foregoing, approval of this measure is earnestly sought
