While the 14th Bill is to domesticate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Program SDGS, making the House the first Legislature in the country to domesticate the post 2015 SDGS Goals.

This followed the consideration of the House Committee Chair report on International Development Cooperation seeking the House approval of the report and the passage of the Bill into Law.

The bills will now be transmitted to the governor for assent when he returns from his over sea journey.
