Villafuerte thanked the proponents of the bill in the Senate.
“Maraming salamat ki Sen Joel Villanueva , chair of the senate commitee on higher education , for sponsoring , defending and more importantly ensuring swift passage of this measure that will benefit thousands of Bicolanos now and in the future,” said Villafuerte.
