The Senate approved House Bill No. 6715 separating SPAMAST-Digos City campus from SPAMAST of Malita, Davao Occidental and converting into a state college to be known as the Davao Del Sur State College on its third and final reading yesterday August 14, 2018.

The bill with the title “An Act Separating the Southern Philippines Agriculture. Business, Marine and Aquatic School Of Technology (Spamast)-Digos City Campus In The City Of Digos, Davao Del Sur, From The Spamast In The Municipality Of Malita, Davao Occidental And Converting It Into A State College To Be Known As The Davao Del Sur State College, And Appropriating Funds Therefor” were introduced by Representatives Mercedes “Didi” C. Cagas, Ann K. Hofer, Lorna P. Bautista-Bandigan, Karlo Alexei B. Nograles, Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado and Dakila Carlo E. Cua to the House on December 12, 2017.

The bill was sponsored by Senator Francis Escudero, chairperson of the Committee on Education, Arts and Culture.

Escudero said the conversion of the institutions into state colleges and universities would give a bigger chance for those who cannot afford private tertiary education and to “equip students with the necessary skills to achieve global competence.”
