Pangasinan Day and tobacco tax

The people of Pangasinan now have another date to mark on their calendars.

The search committee announced the date of April 5 as the foundation day of the Province of Pangasinan .

The people of Pangasinan have another thing to be happy about because the implementing rules and regulations for Republic Act 8240 is now out.

Pangasinan is part of the provinces in the monetization program of the League of Native and Burley Tobacco Growing LGUs, Inc. (LNBTG-LGU).

Republic Act 8240 is intended to provide benefits to communities or local government units producing native and burley tobacco.

This means that together with the celebration of Pangasinan’s birthday there is money that can be used for development projects to help the farmers.

On the other hand, farmers in 21 municipalities are experiencing the effects of El Niño and they need immediate assistance.

We are of the belief that prioritization of how to water the farms is of great importance to avert a large decrease in our food production output.

We are also of the belief that responsible government authorities and personnel will give due assistance to farmers regardless of political affiliation.

The money from RA 8240 should not be used for electoral purposes.
