Bill creating DPWH office in CamNorte’s 1st district secures House approval

0

A bill creating a Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) district engineering office in Camarines Norte’s first district is now a step closer of becoming a law.

CamNorte Rep. Josie Tallado said that she was informed that her principally authored bill has been passed on third and final reading at the House of Representatives.

“Ito ay para mas mapagtuunang pansin ang mga proyekto pang imprastruktura sa Unang Distrito ng Camarines Norte na binubuo ng 5 Munisipyo ng Capalonga, Jose Panganiban, Labo, Paracale at Santa Elena,” she said

“Sa aking isinagawang pag-aaral, lahat ng distrito sa Bicol Region ay may kanya kanyang District Engineering Office ng DPWH. Halimbawa, sa Albay na may 3 Congressional District ay mayroong 3 DPWH District Engineering Office; sa Camarines Sur na may 5 Congressional District ay mayroong 5 DPWH District Engineering Office, ang Catanduanes, Masabate at Sorsogon din ay may mga sariling District Engineering Office sa bawat Congressional District nila,” she said.

Tallado noted that as of now, Camarines Norte, which has two congressional districts, only has one DPWH District Engineering Office in Daet.

“Inihayag ko ang suliraning ito at ipinaliwanag na dapat ay magkaroon ng sariling District Office sa Distrito naten na nakabase sa Labo para mas mapabilis ang mga proyektong pang imprastruktura sa atin,” she said.

“Sinang-ayunan naman ako ng aking mga kasamahan sa Kongreso at nakapasa na ang aking panukalang batas na sa kasalukuyan ay i-finorward na sa Senado para mapagbotohan at maging ganap na batas,” she added.
