House debates bill on total mining ban in Benguet town

The Lower House Committee on Natural Resources started deliberating on House Bill 5475, which seeks to declare Kibungan, Benguet as a large-scale mining- free zone.

The Regional Trial Court in Tagudin, Ilocos Sur has set aside and reversed a joint resolution in 2014 that adjudicated a disputed area of 1,117.20 hectares in the adjoining municipalities of Bakun, Benguet and Sugpon, Ilocos Sur in favor of the Benguet municipality.
The Court of Appeals granted a 60-day reprieve to the developer of Camp John Hay from vacating its leased property from the Bases Conversion and Development Authority as earlier decided on by a court in Baguio, but the BCDA said the CA was misinformed.
