Free tuition at State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) – this new law will surely favor mostly poor students as they can now study, free with no tuitions fee concerns which has been the problem for many years that many students stop entering Colleges due to the lack of money or their family cannot afford it.
2. No hospital down payment in emergency cases – this new law will surely benefit both lower class and upper class family, both classes will not need any money to deposit first in case of emergency before their patient is properly assisted at the hospital. A hospital that failed to comply with the law will be penalized by the government.
3. Passport validity extended to 10 years – this law is good news for all Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) and Filipino tourist loves visiting other country as their renewal of their passport prolonged up to 10 years and now can be avoided the hassle of renewing their passport every 5 years.
