February 28 – SENATOR Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito vowed Thursday to push for the passage of the proposed Sugarcane Bill in the Senate.

“I am really pushing for the passage of this bill to keep my promise to be the voice of Negros in the Senate. I know this is the main concern of our fellow Negrenses,” Ejercito said in a press conference in Bacolod City Thursday.

Ejercito filed Senate Bill 1229 or the Sugarcane Industry Development Act of 2014, which is the counterpart bill of Representative Alfredo Benitez’s proposed legislation in the House of Representatives.
