Lusot na sa ikatlo at huling pagbasa ng Senado ang panukalang batas  na naglalayon ng Permanent Validity ng Live Birth, Death, at Marriage Certificates mula sa Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) at sa National Statistics Office (NSO).

Sa botong 21-0, ipinasa ang Senate Bill No. 2450 o ang Permanent Validity of the Certificates of Live Birth, Death, and Marriage Act.

Nakasaad sa naturang batas na dapat maayos at malinaw pang nababasa at nakikita ang authenticity at security features ng mga dokumento.

“With this piece of legislation, we have clearly and categorically provided the permanent validity of the civil registry documents regardless of the date of issuance.  As such, they will be recognized and accepted in all government or private transactions,” pahayag ni Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla, ang nag-sponsor sa nasabing bill, chairman ng Senate Committee on Civil Service, Government Reorganization and Professional Regulation.

“In one sentence, this is the gist of the bill: A birthday can be celebrated yearly. But birth certificates are forever,” saad naman ni Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto, co-sponsor sa nasabing panukalang batas.

Ipinasa ng Mababang Kapulungan ng Kongreso ang counterpart measure nito noong Hunyo noong nakaraang taon.
