Bill creating Barangay Nambaran East in Tabuk approved on third reading

Tabuk City, Kalinga – The House of Representatives has passed on third and final reading a bill introduced by Kalinga lawmaker Allen Jesse Mangaoang, creating Barangay Nambaran East in Tabuk City.

With 252 affirmative votes, 0 negative, and 0 abstentions, the lower chamber approved on Monday, September 26, the House Bill 4842 substituting the mother bill 2010 which seeks to separate the Sitios of Ileb, New Colayo Village, Kinama, and Nambaran Daya from Barangay Nambaran in Tabuk City and constituting them into a separate independent barangay to be known as Nambaran East.

The new regrouping, according to Mangaoang, will enable the people of the four sitios to use their own Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) to chart their own course in a way that is beneficial to the whole community.

Populated by the Sumadel, Butbut, Bangad and Tulgao tribes of Tinglayan, Kalinga, and Colayo tribe of Pasil, Kalinga, the sitios are far from the center of the barangay and thus always the least priority in development projects and in the delivery of basic services.

“Since time immemorial, the residents of these four sitios believe that they have been overlooked and neglected by both the local and the national government,” stated the solon in his explanatory note.

With the measure, it is expected that new Barangay Nambaran East will not be encumbered by lack of funds for their own socioeconomic development.

Under the bill, territorial boundaries of Barangay Nambaran East shall be “bounded on the East by the Municipality of Rizal; on the South by Barangay Lacnog; on the West by Barangay Nambaran; and on the Northwest by Barangay Dilag.”

The bill shall be transmitted to the Senate for further review and approval.

Once passed into law, Nambaran East will be the 44th barangay of the city.
