CEBU, Philippines - The Talisay City council had approved 358 resolutions and 25 ordinances for the past two years since it convened in July, 2010. Councilor Rodolfo Cabigas tops the list of councilors who authored the most number of resolutions and ordinances in the 4th Sangguniang Panlungsod.

Councilor Valeriano Ylanan is listed as having the least number of resolutions to his name.

Cabigas, who is on his third and last term, has 140 approved resolutions.

He is also the majority floor leader and heads the committee on infrastructure.

Majority of the legislative measures he had authored dealt on simple subdivision, preliminary approval, and locational clearance (PALC) and development permits.

Neophyte Councilor Valeriano Ylanan has two resolutions while Councilor Danny Cabellareo has only eight to his name.

He said that belonging to the minority party and with no committee assignment made it difficult for them to have proposed resolutions approved by the council.

The resolutions were approved without having to undergo the usual way of enacting laws while ordinances undergo legislative procedures.

Talisay Vice Mayor Alan Bucao, the council’s presiding officer, follows Cabigas with 95 resolutions and 10 ordinances.

Bucao authored the city’s Traffic Code, the ordinance that prohibits retail and wholesale establishments from using disposable plastic bags and Styrofoam and truck ban ordinance.

First-term Councilor Semy Cabuenas authored 44 measures while third-term Councilor Bernard Odilao, has 31 measures.

Cabuenas’ resolutions dealt more on financial assistance while Odilao’s legislations were centered on natural resources, being chairman of the committee on environment.

Councilor Dennis Basillote has 34 resolutions while Councilor Choy Aznar has 32.

Neophyte Councilor Eduardo Gullas III and Association Barangay Councils (ABC) president Charles Basillote 20 and 16 measures approved, respectively.

Among the administration councilors, Councilor Edward Alesna is listed as having the least number of measures approved, with 12.

Alesna authored the ordinance penalizing drunkenness in public places, which was approved in February 15, 2011, but the ordinance is also yet to be implemented.

Sangguniang Kabataan Federation president Carmel John Burlas has not submitted a single resolution or proposed an ordinance.

Councilor Romy Villarante has 11 resolutions, which included a request to the Supreme Court to hold bar examinations in Cebu City.

This was approved in October 2010. Villarante also authored the Anti-Red Tape law.
