COOP-NATCCO REPS. AMONG "FOI CHAMPIONS"
COOP-NATCCO Partylist REPS. CRESENTE C. PAEZ, and REP. ANTHONY BRAVO have been hailed as among he "champions" of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Bill.
The two partylist representatives of the cooperative sector, were among those who filed their respective bills on the FOI, which numbered more than a dozen, from different legislators.
In a published report, the "Right To Know, Right Now" (R2KRN) Coalition, listed the different legislators, who filed FOI bills and whom it considered as "FOI champions".
The consolidated FOI bill was approved recently by the Technical Working Group of the Committee on Public Information of the House of Representatives.
According to reports, the consolidated bill, is the result of the combined efforts of civil society groups, the executive and legislative branches; and other stakeholders.
Let us, in the cooperative sector, support this noble and worthwhile bill. (END).
