4 US solons as honorary Filipinos

The American lawmakers who pushed for the recognition and compensation that Filipino war veterans are now receiving from the United States deserve to be considered honorary citizens of the Philippines, according to several bills filed by Zambales Rep. Antonio Diaz.

Diaz' bills, filed February 18, seek want to confer the status on US Senators Theodore Stevens, Daniel Inouye and Daniel Akaka, and Representative Bob Filner for being instrumental for the benefits finally being accorded the Filipino soldiers after a very long battle.

Bills pushed by the American lawmakers paved the way for the incorporation of a provision granting lump sum compensation for the veterans in the stimulus package bill approved by the US congress, Diaz said in his resolutions. By Leila Salaverria - Philippine Daily Inquirer
