House Bill 5440 or the “Act providing for the legal framework and mechanisms for the creation, operation, administration, and coordination of special economic zones in the city of Bacolod, province of Negros Occidental creating for this purpose the Bacolod Economic Zone Authority, and for other purposes.”
