Under the latest version of the bill, a "reconstituted" body under the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) would be tasked to handle the fund. A separate bill must still be passed to amend the agency's charter. PCA administrator Romulo Dela Rosa said the committee was targeting...Keep on reading: Farmers dealt a crushing blow in bicam-ok’d coco levy bill.....»»
