Philippines Senate Bill 136, declaring Chinese New Year an annual special working holiday, has been approved at the committee level in the Senate, and is expected to reach the Senate floor for a vote in early February.
Note that, in parallel, a bill declaring Chinese Lunar New Year as a new special non-working public holiday passed a Committee reading, last summer (2009-08-22), and is still waiting for plenary debate in the Philippines House of Representatives.
