The Regional Development Council- Cordillera (RDC-CAR) Advisory Committee (Ad Com) has agreed to push for consultation and information education communication campaign on autonomy upstream with congressmen and other top officials and down to the grassroots.

In a meeting among Cordillera officials and the RDC members yesterday presided by RDC Chair and Kalinga Governor Jocel Baac, the group passed a motion to draft a resolution for the conduct of a Joint Congressional – RDC Consultation and IEC on Autonomy as well as downstream strategy to the grassroots.

The motion was based on the recommendation of Ifugao Congressman Teddy Baguilat Jr. who gave update on the status of House Bill 5595 – An Act Creating the Cordillera Autonomous Region. The Bill House Committee was passed by the House Committee on Local Government but Benguet Congressman Ronald Cosalan has filed a motion for reconsideration questioning the manner in which the Committee approved on its level HB 5595 without much debate.
