Pangasinan 2nd District Representative Leopoldo Bataoil considered it an hour to have played an active role in the passage of the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL).
The politiko was part of the bicameral conference committee that spent six days reconciling provisions of the versions of the House of Representatives and the Senate.
“I am happy to have contributed in the realisation of BOL(BBL) having joined religiously the Bicam Meetings and the Consultation Dialogues with our people in Mindanao,” said Bataoil.
“My stint in those troubled areas during my active service in the military and police inspired me even more to help in the preservation of our beloved republic. It was my hope and prayers that whatever it takes to bring long and lasting peace in Mindanao, I will actively support,” he added.
For Bataoil, the BOL is “the most awaited answer.”
“God is truly great!!!” he said.
