The constitution stipulates that the House, like the Senate, must have at least half their members present, a quorum, to pass any bill," LPGRA president Bernie M. Bolisay said.
He said those behind the alleged railroading were allies of big oil companies who stand to gain if the measure is passed into law.
According to Bolisay, consumers would be forced to bear additional costs as a result of the proposal to confiscate their old LPG cylinders.
"This was done to impose the will of 'pro-big oil firms' minority on the objecting majority. Since no quorum was present, the approval on second reading of the proposed legislation was not valid," he said.
Bolisay insisted the bill is defective since it does not provide safety nets or subsidy for the confiscation and impounding of substandard and dilapidated LPG cylinders owned mostly by the poor and marginalized sector, which makes the measure is "anti-consumer."
"There is a great lobby for the passage of the bill," he said.

LPGRA president Bernie Bolisay denounced the proposed measure, which is now at second reading at the House of Representatives, as "anti-consumer" as it allows the government to confiscate some six million supposedly dilapidated and substandard LPG cylinders.
He said this would result in the shortage of LPG cylinders and the possible manipulation by major oil companies.
Bolisay said the proposed measure adopts the position of big oil firms.
"The proposed measure only allows the oil majors to continue to dominate and control LPG market," said Bolisay, adding that monopoly always hurts the end-user -- the consumer.
If House Bill 5052 is passed, the purpose of which is to perpetuate the monopoly of major oil companies, Bolisay said consumers would be then denied their rights to choose cheaper and quality LPG, which would then result to incessant increases in the prices of LPG.
Bolisay also noted that the bill does not provide safety nets and subsidy for the confiscation and impounding of substandard and dilapidated cylinders owned mostly by the poor and marginalized sector.
He stressed, however, that the LPGRA is not opposed to re-qualification of LPG cylinders. But this should be done gradually so that consumers would not be affected by the sudden increase of LPG prices.
"Kung mamadaliin ang pagpapalit ng tangke, tanging ang malalaking kumpanya lamang ang may kakayahang makagawa nito na magbibigay daan upang mamatay ang maliliit na dealers at refillers," he stressed.
He said the affected LPG owners will be forced to purchase a brand-new LPG tank at a cost of P1,500 each, with an aggregate cost of P9 billion.

The group, headed by its president Bernie Bolisay, maintained the passage of the bill would have adverse effects on the refillers. Bolisay said the bill would lead to the monopoly in the LPG industry. The LPGRA said it is against the passage of the proposed law. Bolisay said the bill would "kill" the business of independent refillers who are catering to the millions of poor households. "It is anti-poor," Bolisay said, referring to the bill that is being pushed by Ty. The May 31 explosion at Two Serendra killed three persons and seriously injured a tenant. "We should not wait for more people to be killed or harmed in LPG-related disasters," Ty said even as he pushed the passage of the bill. "It has become absolutely imperative for Congress to finally pass the proposed Act Establishing the Regulatory Framework for the Conduct of Business and the Safe Operations of the LPG Industry," he said.

So Bernie Bolisay, president of the LPG Refillers Association, pointed out the obvious, "There is no hoarding by refillers, for the simple reason that there is nothing to hoard. Dealers are also queueing."

But Bernie Bolisay, president of LPG Refillers Association, said the committee should not just rely on the 17,000 to 22,000 metric tons supply figures from Liquigaz, saying the country needs at least 100,000 metric tons monthly to ensure that there will be no shortage of LPG.
"Everybody heard Liquigaz saying there is a coming shipment of 17,000 metric tons for the month of February. For the information of everybody, our monthly requirement based on the 2008 LPG requirement is something like 66,927 metric tons per month.
That was based on 2008, if we will add on the 50% surge based on the January and February sales, we need something like 100,000," said Bolisay.
Bolisay admitted that the Metro Manila LPG supply has normalized but stressed that Laguna, Cavite, Batangas, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Pangasinan, San Fernando City, Baguio City and Ilocos region are still facing the scarcity of the supply of cooking gas.
"We are only hearing Liquigaz with 17,000 metric tons coming in, either today or tomorrow, what about the others? Let's talk about exact figures instead of looking at graphs and written explanations considering not all of us present here are familiar with the use of graphs," he added.
