On May 27, 2019, House Bill (HB) 9106 (HB 9106) entitled “An Act Granting Additional Privileges to Persons with Disabilities,” was approved on third reading by members of the House of Representatives of the 17th Congress, and transmitted to the Senate on May 28, 2019. The bill seeks to amend the Magna Carta for Persons with Disabilities (Republic Act 7277, as amended, or the ‘Magna Carta’ and grant additional privileges to persons with disabilities (PWDs).
