This proposed RRDC shall be chaired by the secretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government and shall include representatives from the departments of Public Works and Highways and of Environment and Natural Resources; one professor each from the University of the Philippines School of Urban and Regional Planning and the UP College of Architecture; and one representative each from the Philippine Green Building Council and the National Parks Development Committee, as members.
The bill said that, a city or municipality already has an existing recreational space, the concerned local government unit shall coordinate with the RRDC to ensure that the area complies with the requirements specified under the proposal.
However, it disagreed with the lower court on the question of what regime would satisfy the duty; while the lower court held that the duty would be discharged if the Yukon Government were to notify RRDC of any newly recorded quartz mining claims, the YKCA held that mere notice is insufficient.
The repeal was unsuccessfully opposed by RRDC, one of three Yukon First Nations which has not yet signed a land claim agreement.
For example, RRDC is not opposed to resource development; on January 30 it was announced that it has signed an exploration agreement with Golden Predator Corp.
The Yukon Government conceded that it had actual knowledge of RRDC's interest in the territory.
If the Government wishes to permit claim staking in the territory, it may only do so if it respects the rights (including the right to be consulted) of RRDC.
