GENERAL TRIAS CITY (GenTri), Cavite – President Rodrigo Roa Duterte signed a law establishing the Land Transportation Office’s district office (LTO) here on May 24, 2022.

Republic Act 11769, authored by Cavite 6th District Representative Luis “Jon Jon” Ferrer IV, directs the Secretary of Transportation to immediately include the operationalization of the LTO district office in the said locality in the department’s programs.

Under the law, the funding for the LTO district office in General Trias must be included in the annual General Appropriations Act (GAA).

RA 11769 must take effect 15 days after publication in the Official Gazette or a newspaper of general circulation.

The act originated in the House of Representatives and was passed by the House and the Senate of the Philippines on May 25, 2021, and January 31, 2022, respectively.

“Bilang pagsusulong po sa ating layunin na mailapit sa ating mga ka-distrito ang mga serbisyo ng pamahalaang nasyonal, ang inyo pong lingkod na nag-akda ng panukalang batas na magtatatag ng District Office ng Land Transportation Office sa ating mahal na Lungsod ng General Trias,” Rep. Ferrer IV said.

“Kaya’t tayo po ay lubos na nagpapasalamat sa atin pong mga kasama sa Kongreso, Senado at sa ating Pangulong Duterte sa pagsasakatuparan sa mithiing ito,” Ferrer IV added.

When it is operational, it is the 8th branch of the total LTO district offices in the entire province of Cavite after Kawit, Imus, Dasmariñas, Carmona, Bacoor, Cavite City, and Naic extension office.
