Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan urged Cordillerans to push harder for the passage of House Bill No. 5343 which seeks to establish the Autonomous Region in the Cordillera.
The Baguio politiko made the statement after the House of Representatives passed its version of Charter Change on second reading.
Domogan autonomy advocates should talk to lawmakers so that House Bill No. 5343 will finally be calendared for deliberations.
He also called on Cordillerans to formalize suggestions to improve the bill.
“We should all be inspired to work extra hard for the passage of our own autonomy bill so that we will be able to prepare our region for self-governance and for us to chart our development directions,” Domogan said.
