Kalinga Representative Allen Jesse Mangaoang said he welcomes Senator Bong Go’s assurance of support for Cordillera’s quest for autonomy.
The Kalinga politiko said Go’s statement of support will motivate Cordillera lawmakers to finalize the autonomy bill.
Mangaoang said Cordillera politikos are currently finalizing the proposed amendments to the bill.
He explained that they are aligning the proposed amendments with President Rodrigo Duterte’s push for federalism.
“We’re doing our part to iron out the provisions of the proposed autonomy bill before we will file it so that we will be able to start pushing for it in the House committee where it will be referred by the plenary,” Mangaoang said.
