Panaligan joins hearing on bills strengthening local school boards
Oriental Mindoro Rep. Arnan Panaligan has joined the congressional hearing on bills seeking to expand the functions and membership of Local School Boards.
The Committee on Local Governments and the Committee on Basic Education tackled the said measures.
“Magkasamang nagpulong ang Committee on Local Governments at Committee on Basic Education ng House of Representatives upang talakayin ang mga panukalang batas tungkol sa pagpapalawak ng mga kasapi at kapangyarihan ng Local School Boards ganun din ang mga programang maaaring pondohan ng Special Education Fund,” said Panaligan.
“Ang ating karanasan bilang dating City Mayor at Governor ay nakatulong sa pagtalakay at pagsusuri ng mga ganitong panukalang batas na may kaugnayan sa local government administration,” he added.
Rep. Rex Gatchalian, a former Mayor of Valenzuela, chairs the Committee on Local Governments. Panaligan meanwhile serves as the vice chairman.
Meanwhile, Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo is the chairman of the Committee on Basic Education.
