Bill filed to replace ancient road rules


By Rose de la Cruz


House Bill 1987, the proposed Philippine Responsible Driving and Accountability Act, has been filed to replace the ancient road rules which had been unjust to law-abiding, responsible drivers and pedestrians.


Rep. Frederick Siao, lone district Iligan and the bill’s author, said the bill would revamp parts of the country’s land transportation and traffic rules.


"When this becomes law, it will be a landmark, pivotal piece of legislation that will radically change the road rules and improve road safety," Siao said.


Under current laws and procedures, drivers or motorists involved in road incidents and traffic…

By Rose de la Cruz


House Deputy Majority Leader, Rep. Bernadette Herrera-Dy, Bagong Henerasyon partylist, wants the Commission on Audit and the Department of Education to explain their respective reports on schoolbuildings in 2018, which she said, sounds unbelievable.


At the same time, she urged the DepEd to radically improve its efficiency in producing new classrooms and school buildings, and financial management with real-time online reporting.

By Rose de la Cruz


By building churches inside the super malls of SM or right beside it, the Felicidad T. Sy Foundation Inc. makes sure to take care of the spiritual needs (and the soul) of the mall employees and mall goers,  who pack their church obligations in the cool comfort of the mall churches and chapels.

Uplifting the lot of the peasants



By Rose de la Cruz


Farmers, just like the slaves of yore play a very important, but the least appreciated, role in society. Noble as their task is, their hardwork to produce food for their fellow humans seldom get recognized and this sector in fact is the most marginalized, getting the least resources and attention from government.
