Go added the road has gone through a lot of era and stands the test of time and has transformed into a functional and historic road.
“I believe it is high time that it be recognized as a cultural heritage zone,” added Go.
The proposed measure recommends Kennon Road’s rehabilitation, preservation, conservation and development.
The solon also filed House Bill No. 5015 which provides full scholarship grants to tertiary students enrolled in State Universities and Colleges as well as those in public Technical-Vocational Institutes.

The bill highlights the proposed improvement in the access of students to tertiary education.
“Undeniably, our country has become exporters of excellent and intelligent minds who contribute to the intellectual well-being of our nation. We should invest in our students. Let us give them the best education that they deserve,” Go said.
“We should always bear in mind that everything we do and whatever we invest in education shall redound to the development of our country,” Go added. (PR)
