Congressman Roilo Golez, Author of the Creation of the P2 Billion Guimaras Oil Spill Abatement Fund

Congressman Roilo Golez, Author of the Creation of the P2 Billion Guimaras Oil Spill Abatement Fund

The House of Representatives approved last night the proposal of Congressman Roilo Golez to create a P2 Billion Guimaras Oil Spill Abatement Fund as part of the P46 Billion Supplemental Budget of the National Government. The fund will be allocated among the local government units of the affected areas, the Philippine Coast Guard and other relevant government agencies.
Cong. Roilo Golez, although from Paranaque City, is very concerned about the Guimaras Oil Spill. His father was from Dumangas, Iloilo, one of the threatened coastal towns. His grandfather was from Navalas in Guimaras. The Golezes were originally from Guimaras but transferred to Dumangas at the turn of the other century (1899-1900). Congressman Roilo Golez has many close relatives in Guimaras like Rudy Golez of Buenavista and niece Lally Golez Nava, wife of the Mayor of Jordan.
