Senior Deputy Minority Leader and Buhay Partylist Rep. Lito Atienza on Monday lauded President Rodrigo Duterte's latest order to the local government units (LGUs) in Laguna de Bay to destroy the fishpens that have been clogging massive flooding in Rizal province. Atienza also appealed to the LGUs to be prudent in implementing reclamation projects in their areas as these would spawn bigger problems." We appealed to our local government units to go slow on their reclamation projects as these would have adverse effects on our communities. Manila, for example, would be most endangered with the five or six reclamation projects in the pipeline, " he said.
