Manila, Philippines – Naghain ang 29 mambabatas ng resolusyon upang busisiin ang Tropical Fabrics Law.

Pinamunuan ni Deputy Speaker at lone District Rep. Loren Legarda ang paghahain ng resolusyon sa ilalim ng House Resolution No. 1211 upang magsagawa ng pagtatanong sa implemenstasyon ng Republic Act No. 9242.

“After more than 16 years since its approval into law, its full potential has not yet been realised because of several challenges such as the lack of local manufacturers who can produce the fibers to fabric, the unavailability of handlooms, and weaving technology, and ultimately, the need to sustain production capability in order to meet market demands,” saad ng mga mambabatas.

Pinunto nila na dapat isama ang pondo para dito sa General Appropriations Act (GAA).

“The strengthening of the tropical fabrics industry will not only promote sustainable development and preserve the art of weaving, but will also generate employment in the rural areas and sustain growth in the agricultural sector,” dagdag pa nila.

Kasama sa mga may-akda nito sina Reps. Christopher De Venecia, Francisco “Kiko”Benitez, Kristine Singson-Meehan, Evelina Escudero, Rose Marie “Baby” Arenas, Vilma Santos-Recto; Deogracias Victor Savellano Victor Yap, Sol Aragones, Strike Revilla, Ann Hofer, Rosanna “Ria” Vergara, Lucy Torres-Gomez, Weslie Gatchalian, Geraldine Roman, Sharon Garin, Rufus Rodriguez, Marlyn “Len” Alonte, Juan Miguel Arroyo, LIanda Bolilia, Camille Villar, Stella Luz Quimbo, Jose Enrique Garcia III, Edward Maceda, Alfred Vargas, Jose Christoper Belmonte, Jericho Jonas Nograles, at John Marvin “Yul” Servo.RNT/ELM
