Karl John C. Reyes of InterAksyon.com reveals that Senator Ralph Recto made the appeal for the Senate Committee on Ways and Means not to use his now-controversial report on the Sin Tax reform bill. The InterAksyon.com article noted: "Recto made the statement after Sen. Franklin Drilon, acting chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, insinuated that the panel might use Recto’s report."

 

The InterAksyon.com article noted that Recto "quit his post as chairman of the committee amid mounting allegations that he had watered down the version of the proposed Sin Tax measure." The art icle quoted Recto, who said, "I will provide inputs, but I will respectfully request to the floor not to use my report, which is a product of the arduous public hearing, which I wrote. It is my intellectual property, it is the product of my own mind, why use my report....Let them write their own report, but not use my report."
