Duterte signed Republic Act No. 11080 to resection the previous four legislative districts of the second largest province of the Philippines.

The reapportioning will “commence in the next national and local elections after the effectivity of this Act,” which means that in the 2019 elections, Isabela will be electing six congressmen instead of four.
