The House Committee on Environment has approved House Bill 124, declaring the Pasonanca watershed forest reserve here as a “protected area” under the category of a natural park. This was disclosed by Zamboanga City Rep. Celso Lobregat, who hailed the approval of the bill at the committee level and expressed confidence that it will breeze through the plenary in the House, as well as the Senate. Lobregat said that once HB 124 is passed into law, the Pasonanca natural park will become a protected area and will be provided with the necessary funding by the national government for its preservation.
