Laguna 3rd District Representative Sol Aragones on May 24 called the bicameral committee’s approval of the proposed national ID system as a “historical milestone.”

The bicameral conference committee earlier this week approved the Philippine Identification System Act which seeks to establish a national ID system in the country.

The PhilSyS ID aims to “synchronize and harmonize all existing government-initiated identification cards, into a unified, comprehensive and efficient system.”

“Finally, more than two decades after it was first proposed, the Philippines will have its very own national ID system,” Aragones said.

“This is a historical milestone. We now have an opportunity to create a significant impact and everlasting effect in the lives of our people with something that can fit in our pocket, kasya sa bulsa, in the form of an ID,” she added.
