Today, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (PGMA) signed Republic Act 9492, "An Act Rationalizing the Celebration of National Holidays", into law.

This law, which amends Section 26, Chapter 7, Book I of Executive Order No. 292 (also known as the Administrative Code), now make the so-called Holiday Economics, or the practice of shifting holiday observances, into official government policy, and mandates that most holidays, except those with religious significance, will be shifted to the nearest Monday.

This law codifies the attempt, earlier this year (19-Jan-2007), to make the occurrence of public holidays more predictable.
