New legislation must be printed in "news reports and media" for a certain amount of time to inform the public before the law goes into effect so I'm not sure why getting this information from those sources would be seen as a bad thing. Do you think I'm read opinion pieces when looking this stuff up? Again, I am talking about policy and guidelines put out by government agencies and entities. They DO change without the approval of Congress or the executive branch and you are refusing to acknowledge this. Example: the Dumaguete LTO decided not to give foreigners a driver's license if they weren't on a permanent resident visa longer than one year, then they didn't require it, then they did, who knows what the actual rule is now? Will it be the same next week? Next year? Meanwhile, Bais LTO was giving out license to anyone that applied. Did Congress or the president pass any legislation or executive order mandating this? It doesn't matter which way you look at it local policy was changing the way the law was being implemented and enforced. Example: acquiring an exit clearance at the airport. Just search the term on this forum to see how many times this has changed over the years and the confusion surrounding the rule. Example: the IATF can change rules mandating or restricting the actions, travel and livelihoods of everyone in the country without having to wait for Congress or the President to write up, debate on, amend, debate again, vote on and then sign a new bill every single time there is a policy change. Policy and SOP of any government agency changes as frequently, many times much more frequently, as the OIC of the agency does. This is by design and legislation, many times, gives broad powers to government agencies to come up with their own policy. It has to be that way because the legislative process is, by design, slow and difficult. Policy and enforcement of the law is what the end user has to deal with in their daily lives.
