MANILA, Philippines Health Secretary Francisco Duque III asked President Rodrigo Duterte to certify as urgent a Senate bill seeking to raise tobacco taxes in order to fund the universal health care (UHC) bill.

Duque confirmed this in a text message to Rappler on Sunday, October 14.

The health chief submitted a letter, addressed to Duterte and dated October 11, pushing for Senate Bill (SB) No. 1605.

Senate President Vicente Sotto III, House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, and Presidential Legislative Liaison Office Secretary Adelino Sitoy were copied in the letter.

Duque said on Sunday that Duterte has yet to respond.
