Expect minor kids-free streets at night soon. The House committee on welfare of children chaired by Zamboanga del Sur Rep. Divina Grace Yu this week approved a substitute bill seeking to establish a curfew to keep minors safe and off the streets at night. The proposed “Unsafe Hours for Children” substituted House Bills 894 and 2332. The bill aims to promote the well-being of children and their families by ensuring their collective safety. It likewise seeks to prevent children from becoming vulnerable to the negative influences of street life.
