Bumuo ang Kamara noong Miyerkules ng 21-member group para sa bicameral conference committee na magtitiyak na ang P4.506-trilyong 2021 national budget ay maipapasa bago matapos ang taon.

“We have to make sure the (general appropriations bill) lands on President Duterte’s desk for his signature before the year ends to prevent a reenacted spending program that could slow economic growth and hamper the delivery of government services in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic,” giit ni House Speaker Lord Allan Velasco.

Ang House contingent, na pinangungunahan ni House Committee on Appropriations chair Eric Yap, sa bicam panel ay inatasang pagkaisahin ang mga probisyon ng House Bill 7727 o ang panukalang General Appropriations Act of 2021.

Kasama ni Yap sina vice-chairmen Deputy Speakers Salvador “Doy” Leachon at Mikee Romero, at 16 na kongresista ng mayorya na sina: Majority Leader Ferdinand Martin Romualdez, Pampanga Rep. Juan Pablo “Rimpy” Bondoc, Rizal Rep. Michael John Duavit, Deputy Majority Leader Bernadette Herrera, Romblon Rep. Eleandro Jesus Madrona, Negros Occidental Rep. Francisco Benitez, at Sulu Rep. Munir Arbison.

Kabilang din sina Deputy Speaker Loren Legarda, Assistant Majority Leader Kristine Singson-Meehan, Deputy Speaker Roberto Puno, Deputy Speaker Jose “Lito” Atienza, Batangas Rep. Eileen Ermita-Buhain, Valenzuela Rep. Eric Martinez, Abra Rep. Joseph Bernos, Albay Rep. Joey Salceda, at Valenzuela City Rep. Weslie Gatchalian.

Kasali rin sa pangkat sina Minority Leader Joseph Stephen “Caraps” Paduano at ang independent na si Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman.

Ang House contingent ay binuo alinsunod sa pag-apruba ng Senado sa 2021 GAB.
