Yedda Romualdez, Lucy Torres team up for Disaster Dep’t bill


These fresh-faced lawmakers have teamed up to make a law for a good cause.

Tingog Rep. Yedda Marie Romualdez and Ormoc Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez proved yet again that there’s more to them than their charm and looks. The Visayan politikos buckled down to work on the specifics of a bill creating the Department of Disaster Resilience (DDR), drawing from their experience with Typhoon Yolanda a years ago.

The lady solons completed an updated version of the proposal under a Technical Working Group, which is now up for committee approval.

Will their collective effort usher this bill into fruition — let’s wait and see.
