‘Bad news!’: Sharon Garin dismayed over veto of PCA bill


It’s sad to see one of her pet bills get derailed.

Aambis Owa Party-list Rep. Sharon Garin could not contain her disappointment over the decision of President Rodrigo Duterte to veto the bil that seeks to reform the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA), which she had been lobbying ever since her first term.

The measure has been passed by Senate and the House of Representatives, which will take care of the coconut levy funds and provide more seats for coconut farmers and private sector representatives at the PCA Board.

“Bad news!,” Garin said upon hearing the fate of the proposal.
