Villar pushes bill reconstituting PCA Board: Sen. Cynthia Villar, chairman of the Committee on Agriculture and Food, discusses with Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) Administrator Romulo dela Rosa the advantages of an increased farmer sector representation in the PCA Board. Villar said Senate Bill 1913 or the "Reconstituted PCA Board Law," which provides for six farmer representatives in the 11-member PCA Board, ensures the protection of farmers' interest in the agency's decision-making process, including the management of the P105-billion Coconut Farmers and Industry Trust Fund.
