PAGASA attended a Technical Working Group Meeting on 26 February 2020 at the Lower House for the Committee on Ecology chaired by House Speaker-elect Rep. Lord Allan Jay Quinto Velasco of the lone district of Marinduque who sponsored the latest bill on plastic bags. This Meeting was supposed to consolidate all bills related to Single-Use Plastic Products/Materials. It was going to be a quick succession of TWG Meetings to swiftly solve the issue on plastics.
