The Congress of the Philippines’ history can be divided into two eras split in between by the period when the Philippines was under martial law. The first era, covering the years from 1946 to 1972, was the Congress created following World War II and the subsequent independence of the Philippines from American colonial rule. The second era, reckoned from the enactment of the 1987 Constitution which re-established the Congress survives until the present.
Laws enacted by the Congress of the Philippines are denominated as “Republic Acts” and are cited as “R.A. No.___”. There are now over 10,200 Republic Acts.
