Albee to act on
disparity in fuel price


Rep. Alfredo Abelardo “Albee” Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) yesterday said he has refiled his Sugarcane Industry Development Actbill and is seeking another inquiry into the price disparity between fuel sold in Negros Occidental and Metro Manila when Congress resumes.

The sugarcane bill failed to pass in the 15th Congress and Benitez, who refilled it on July 1, is again pushing for its approval in the 16th Congress.

The bill is geared towards revitalizing and strengthening the sugarcane industry through diversification, development and financing programs to cushion, if not counter, the possible destabilization effects of the drop tariff on imported sugar by 2015, Benitez has said.moremoremore
