MANILA, Philippines — Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas has filed a bill seeking to give public school teachers tax-exempt incentives if they are assigned outside the town, city, or province of their residence.

According to Vargas, his proposed Distant Public School Teachers Incentives Act House – or House Bill No. 10174 — takes into account the additional expenses of teachers working far from home, which “invariably affects the quality of education.”
