National ID ni Ping, Pirmado Na!

Matapos na tila ‘matulog sa pansitan’ sa nakalipas na ilang administrasyon, ganap nang naging batas at mapapakinabangan na ng mamamayan ang panukalang National ID ni Senador Panfilo Lacson.

Ang naturang panukala na inumpisahang isulong ni Lacson taong 2001 nang maging senador siya sa unang pagkakataon ay ganap nang nilagdaan ng Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte bilang Republic Act 11055 sa isang seremonyas sa Malacanang.

Ipinaabot ni Lacson ang personal niyang pasasalamat sa Pangulong Duterte dahil bagama’t halos nasa kalagitnaan pa lamang ang termino nito ay napabilang na ang panukala sa mga nalagdaan bilang batas.

Batas Na! Lacson Expects National ID System to Speed Up Transactions, Deter Crime

Filipinos will now have an easier time transacting with the government and with private entities, after the National ID bill advocated by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson was finally signed into law by President Rodrigo Duterte.

Lacson said Republic Act 11055, which harmonizes and integrates the redundant government ID cards into a single system, would also help deter criminality.

“At long last, we now have a law that breaks the formidable barriers between government and the downtrodden and the poor due to the lack of identification,” Lacson said.

Lacson is the principal sponsor of the measure, aside from being a perennial author since his first term as senator in 2001.

On the other hand, Lacson expressed thanks to President Duterte, as it was under his term that the national ID system – whose legislative journey spanned four presidencies – saw the light of day.
