A year later, a 5 million-peso allocation was given for the implementation of the said pledge.

In 2011, Trillanes allocated P5 million for the construction of the Tacurong City Medical and Dental Center.

In his message, Senator Trillanes reported that he is among the signatories of the Salary Standardization Law 3 that endeavours to increase the benefits of the civil servants in the country. He also told Mayor Montilla, “If there are more proposed projects from your city, my office will always be waiting.” He further explained that despite the abolition of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), he will find a way to extend help for the city.

He is among the most productive members of the senate, who ranked 4th before the 2013 senatorial elections with more than 30 senate bills passed into law. He also ranked second among senators with most number of national bills sponsored and committee hearings conducted.
