Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon is glad to have played a part in the crafting of a new measure to develop the use of electric vehicles in the country.

Biazon on Wednesday reported that Republic Act 11697, or the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act, has been signed into law.

He had been pushing for the measure’s approval since 2004, but it was only recently that it gained traction, he said.

“Isa na naman ito sa mga makabagong programa na ating sinulong bilang mambabatas. Siguro nga masyado pa siyang advanced nung una kong sinulong noong 2004 kaya ngayong 2022 lang inaprubahan. Sabi nga minsan may mga ideas that are ahead of its time,” he said on Facebook.

Biazon, who is running for Muntinlupa mayor, also said this shows that his promise to bring modern programs and projects for the city is not just all talk.

“Kaya naman kung sinasabi natin na sa One Muntinlupa magkakaroon ng mga makabagong programa at proyekto, ito ay talagang maasahan na magagawa dahil napatunayan na natin na noon pa man, lagi tayong may mga makabagong panukala na napapatupad,” he said.

“While others just make promises, we have actually delivered results,” he added.
