Albay Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman has attended an orientation for regional, national, and local policymakers initiated by the Philippine Legislators’ Committee on Population and Development foundation, Inc.

“Happy to attend the Philippine Legislators’ Committee on Population and Development foundation, Inc.’s (PLCPD) Issue Orientation for Regional, National, and Local Policymakers re: ‘Strengthening the Role of Policymakers in SDG Policy and Action’,” Lagman.

Lagman also extended his appreciation to his father, Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman who delivered a lecture-presentation titled, “Prioritizing Health and Rights of Women and Children for the 18th Congress”.

“The father of the RH Law surely has the institutional memory to help local legislatures in crafting their own reproductive health ordinances,” said the younger Lagman.

The Vice Governor also said that he will “actively support” the passage of the proposed Reproductive Health Ordinance for Albay.

“I am confident that the honorable members of the 13th Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Albay are forward-thinking local legislators who will eventually make this a legislative reality in the province,” said Lagman.
