‘Visayan bloc okay to Carp completion’

visayan dailyMembers of the Visayan bloc are agreeable to the issuance of notices of coverage for the distribution of the remaining 50,000 has. identified by the Department of Agrarian Reform for the completion of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program, but are against the extension of CARP for another two years.

This was disclosed yesterday by Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) after a meeting last week of the Visayan bloc, composed of 42 members of the House.

Benitez said the Visayan bloc will seek an amendment to House Bill No. 4296, that proposes to extend the 27-year-old CARP for another two years.

“Basically, we agree to the completion of the distribution process but the DAR must provide us with a specific list of the 50,000 has. that need notices of coverages,” he said.

He said they will file an amendment to House Bill No. 4296 when the House resumes its sessions on May 4, after the summer break.*CPG
