The LCC Technical Working Group (TWG) Meeting was conducted on January 23, 2020 at the Bureau of Curriculum Development (BCD) Conference Room, Bonifacio Building, DepEd Central Office. The LCC Secretariat, together with the TWG and Council Representatives, discussed the Proposed Literacy Coordinating Council Bill as amended by Republic Act No. 10122 enacted on July 27, 2009. This was presided over by Mr. Nemesio O. Malatamban III, Supervising Legislative Officer II of the House of Representatives.
The proposal to revise and expand the current LCC Law was initially presented during the last Midyear Performance Review held on July 16-18, 2019 in Cebu City. Originally, the foundation of the LCC Law (RA No. 10122) was the Republic Act No. 7165, otherwise known as “An act creating the Literacy Coordinating Council, defining its powers and functions, appropriating funds therefor and for other purposes”. On-site comments and suggestions on RA No. 10122 were integrated vis-à-vis the proposed LCC Bill through a matrix. Further revisions and inputs on the Proposed Revised LCC Bill will be included in the drafting of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) once the new law is approved.
