Interesting observation from a Mindanao Railway Watchers poster

https://www.facebook.com/MindanaoRailWatch/posts/2846725858928149

One of the legislators that pushed for the Mindanao Railway during Cory Aquino's time was Fabian Sison

HB19743
[History]
 
Significance: Local
Date Filed: 1988-10-21

Full Title: AN ACT ESTABLISHING A RAILWAY SYSTEM IN MINDANAO

Principal Author/s: SISON, FABIAN S.

Date Read: 1988-11-21
Primary Referral: TRANSPORTATION AND COMMUNICATION

Bill Status: Pending with the Committee on TRANSPORTATION AND COMMUNICATION since 1988-11-21

While the Congressional Website does not have online records for Congressmen during this period, Wikipedia -- as unreliable a resource as it is -- reports the Congressman Sison was the representative of the 3rd district of Pangasinan. A congressman from Luzon appears to have found common ground with Mindanaoans on this matter.
