The House Committee on Government Enterprises and Privatization has just approved House Bill No. 432, entitled: “AN ACT CREATING THE METRO CAGAYAN DE MISAMIS DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY, DEFINING ITS POWERS AND FUNCTIONS, PROVIDING FUNDING THEREFOR AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES” authored by Rep. Rufus B. Rodriguez. The approval was made during the committee’s virtual meeting via Zoom today, September 3, 2020.
In his explanatory note, Rep. Rodriguez cited the economic gains of Cagayan de Oro City and its improvements and investments which will inevitably spill over to neighboring cities and municipalities.
