More efficient dispensation of justice and declogging of court case dockets during the health crisis may be achieved as the House of Representatives approved on final reading Tuesday, House Bills 7022, 7023 and 7024. HB 7022 is authored by Rep. Jose Tejada (3rd District, North Cotabato), HB 7023 by Rep. Jonathan Keith Flores (2nd District, Bukidnon), and HB 7024 by Rep. Ruth Mariano Hernandez (2nd District, Laguna). Each was unanimously passed with 229 votes. If the bills become laws, they would create additional Regional Trial Court (RTC) branches in the Municipality of M’lang, North Cotabato, in Malaybalay, Bukidnon, as well as in the Municipality of Los Ba?os and Cabuyao City, Laguna.
