The shift to a federal form of government is an investment that is like moving into a new home, according to the Consultative Committee that developed the draft federalism charter.
Consultative Committee (Concom) member Professor Edmund Tayao compared the shift to moving to a new house that will entail additional expenses at the start but generally improves the stature and condition of the occupants.
“Just because you have additional expense when changing the form of government doesn’t mean that that additional expense will be there forever. Additional costs in federalizing the country is an investment that would boost the country’s economic activity later on,” said Tayao.

Ito ang babala ni DILG OIC-Secretary Eduardo M. Año sa mga tiwaling pulis ng Philippine National Police (PNP) bilang bahagi nang pagpapaigting ng internal cleansing sa pamahalaan.
"Walang makakalusot. Ang mga pulis na mapapatunayang may kaugnayan sa anumang iligal na gawain ay matatanggal sa serbisyo," ani Año na dating Chief of Staff ng Armed Forces of the Philippines.
"Titiyakin ng DILG at PNP na ang hangarin ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte na alisin ang mga 'bugok na itlog' sa hanay ng pulisya ay maisasakatuparan bilang bahagi nang malawakang internal cleansing ng pamahalaan laban sa korapsyon," dagdag pa niya.
