The public can have to anticipate August 5 to know whether or not the tuition charge at state universities and faculties will stay free for the years to come.
That’s as a result of President Rodrigo Duterte will decide whether or not or not to signal the bill on bill granting free tuition to SUCs earlier than it lapses into regulation on that date.
Facing reporters after talking on the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s anniversary Wednesday (August 2), Duterte confirmed that the bill is now on his desk.
“It’s in my table. I will decide before the deadline,” he stated.
President Rodrigo Duterte’s financial managers have suggested him to veto the bill, saying the federal government can’t fund it.
But lawmakers who ssupport the bill, similar to Senator Bam Aquino, stated the federal government will solely want to spend P25 billion yearly– not P100 billion because the financial managers claimed– to make tuition charges free in SUCs.
