House approves measure creating another congressional district in Bataan
By Billy Begas
The House of Representatives on Tuesday approved on third and final reading a measure creating an additional congressional district in Bataan.
No one objected to the approval of House Bill 8664, which received 202 affirmative votes.
Under the measure, Bataan will be divided in three legislative districts:
– First District: Dinalupihan, Hemosa, Orani, Morong, Samal, and Abucay
– Second District: Balanga, Orion, and Pilar
– Third District: Bagac, Limay, and Mariveles
The law mandates the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to issue necessary rules and regulation for the implementation of the proposal once enacted into law.
Bataan is currently represented in Congress by Geraldine Roman (first district) and Jose Enrique Garcia III.
