La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda lauded Benguet caretaker and ACT-CIS Representative Eric Yap for prioritizing the proposed bill that seeks to convert the town into a component city.
Yap earlier filed House Bill No. 6366 seeking to convert capital towns into component cities if the province does not have component cities, independent component cities, or highly urbanized cities.
He also filed House Bill No. 6467 seeking to convert La Trinidad into a component city.
“We are very lucky to have a lawmaker who is passionate in pursuing the passage of the bills that he filed in the present Congress,” Salda said.
“We will surely treasure the outcome of Congressman Yap’s efforts to have his La Trinidad cityhood proposals passed in the House so that we will be able to elevate the status of our municipality to a higher level,” he added.
