Sen. Jamby Madrigal reloaded
Finally seen Sen. Jamby Madrigal in the flesh today during an oversight committee hearing for the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act. Civil society members monitoring the implementation of the law vented out their disappointments with the law's lackluster implementation and oftentimes blatant skewing: Mixed waste, for example, is still being collected by garbage collectors and local government units are not interested in putting up sanitary landfills to replace currently existing dumpsites, which are due to be outlawed next year. Sen. Madrigal was seemingly eager to take this up in the future with her favorite cabinet member--Sec. Mike Defensor.
