Following a last-minute amendment by Philippines Senator Edgardo Angara, the Senate of the Philippines has amended the current Chinese New Year public holiday legislation to make Chinese New Year a "working holiday".

Originally, the aforementioned Senate Bill No. 3323 was meant to complement the House Bill 1072 (02-Aug-2012) and make Chinese New Year an annual non-working holiday in the Philippines, following the previous year's one-off declaration of Chinese New Year as a public holiday in the Philippines, as per Proclamation No. 295, s. 2011 (01-Dec-2011), which had followed many promises and stillborn bills over the years (19-Jan-2011, 12-Jan-2011, 03-Jan-2011, 28-Jan-2010, 22-Aug-2009, 14-May-2009, and 14-Mar-2009).

For 2013, Proclamation No. 459, s. 2012 (01-Sep-2012), which lists the special and regular non-working public holidays in the Philippines for the calendar year 2013, does not include a public holiday for Chinese New Year, because, according to Philippines, deputy presidential spokesperson, Abigail Valte "There is no need to declare the Chinese New Year for 2013 a holiday or nonworking day because it will fall on a Sunday" (03-Sep-2012).
