Calling for the immediate passage of the NLUA Bill in the Senate

While President Aquino III failed to mention the National Land Use Act (NLUA) Bill as one of his priority bills during his last State of the Nation Address (SONA), NLUA advocates see hope as Senate President Franklin Drilon announces NLUA as a priority bill in the Senate after a closed-door meeting of Senators on 3 August (see news post here).

On this note, the Campaign for Land Use Policy Now! organized a mobilization on 25 August at the Senate to demand for Senator Drilon to pass NLUA immediately and avoid repeating his predecessor’s move to block the bill’s passage last Congress.

And with the shuffling of chairmanship of the Environment and Natural Resources Committee, where the NLUA Bill is lodged in, advocates hope that this major change in the Committee’s leadership will not hinder the passage of the Bill.
