LOAMC Pres. Rommel C. Arnado: Just Left the house of Congressman Jose “Bentot” T. Panganiban, Jr, chair on committee on Agriculture and Food. Since the 17th congress is on recess, we were being entertained at his house in QC. We lobbied on the National Organic Budget not to be cut and instead to be increased and seek his support that LOAMC member municipalities will have a special allocation (per NOAB agreement) on the 2019 GAA on Organic Agriculture. With me is Prof Vic Tagupa, ED LOAMC and Kevin Fernan LGU Consultant.
