Philippine Laws: June 2010

The last month of President GMA’s term saw her approving 19 laws, all on June 3, 2010. Of these, only Republic Act No. 10123 seem particularly significant as it created 5 additional branches of the Regional Trial Court in the 11th Judicial Region to be stationed at the Province of Sarangani. Unfortunately, there is not much to discuss here except to note that the Province of Sarangani is home of our world-renowned boxing hero-turned- Congressman. The other laws approved involved the naming of National Roads (6) and National High Schools (11), and the renaming of a library. Here’s hoping the new administration will pass more interesting and society-changing legislation.
