The Legislative Districts of Zambales, namely the first and second districts, are the current representations of the province of Zambales and the independent city of Olongapo in the Philippine House of Representatives.
Zambales, including the city of Olongapo (chartered in 1966), comprised a lone district until 1972. The province and chartered city were represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region III from 1978 to 1984.
Zambales elected one representative to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984, with Olongapo sending a separate representative as a highly urbanized city. Effective February 11, 1987, the province (Olongapo re-grouped with it) was divided into two congressional districts under the new Constitution, and elected members to the restored House of Representatives starting that same year.
Famous quotes containing the words legislative and/or districts:
“Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her laplet it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges;Mlet it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs;Mlet it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
“Cities need old buildings so badly it is probably impossible for vigorous streets and districts to grow without them.... for really new ideas of any kindno matter how ultimately profitable or otherwise successful some of them might prove to bethere is no leeway for such chancy trial, error and experimentation in the high-overhead economy of new construction. Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.”
—Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)
