Cagayan de Oro City 2nd Dist. Rep. Rufus B. Rodriguez has filed a bill seeking to rename the main airport in Misamis Oriental in honor of the late former Philippine Vice President Emmanuel N. Pelaez. This is the second time he filed such bill.
In his explanation, Rodriguez said the name and legacy of Pelaez, who was born in Medina, Misamis Oriental, should continue to live on. He added said Pelaez’ contributions to the country as Vice-President, Senator, Congressman, Secretary of Foreign Affair and Ambassador should never be forgotten. House Bill No. 5704 was filed last December 4, 2019 and was referred to the House Committee on Transportation. Read full text of House Bill No. 5704 below.
In 2014, he and his brother former Rep. Maximo Rodriguez jointly filed the same bill. See our old post below.
