Members of the Save the Sugar Industry Movement will have to skip the House inquiry today on a resolution opposing the planned sugar import liberalization, its secretary-general, Wennie Sancho, said yesterday.
He said his group and the sugar workers were invited by the House Committee on Agriculture and Food to attend today’s hearing on House Resolution No. 412 that “expresses strong opposition to the planned liberalization or deregulation of sugar importation for the purpose of safeguarding the welfare of farmers and farm and mill workers across the country”.
implements ‘one bill policy’
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
The Central Negros Electric Cooperative Inc. is reminding its consumers about the implementation of the “one bill policy” to avoid disconnection.
In an advisory yesterday, Lolita Jayme, Ceneco general manager, said member-consumers must pay their bills nine days after receipt. Otherwise, their account will be automatically considered past due.
She said consumers should pay their bills promptly and not wait for the disconnection notice, which is rendered after the due date.
