Senate Bill No. 2929: An Act Amending Section 61 of Local Government Code of 1991

The bill seeks to amend Section 61 of RA 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991, thereby proposing that complaint against any elective official of a component city should be filed before the Sangguiang Panlalawigan and not with the Office of the President. The proposal is grounded on the reason that under the concept of devolution, a component city is under the administrative and disciplinary jurisdiction of the province where it is geographically located.
