RIDGWAY - Ridgway Mayor Guillermo Udarbe and Consul General of the Philippines Mario De Leon Jr. and his staff attended a meeting with Congressman Glenn Thompson [PA-5] Wednesday afternoon at his office in Bellefonte to encourage sponsorship of a bill aimed to allow the duty-free entry of Philippine garments into the U.S.
Currently the bill, H.R. 2387, Save Our Industries Act, has 20 bipartisan cosponsors hoping to grant the duty-free entry of Philippine garments into the United States if the textiles and fabrics are made in the U.S.
