Since her first term as a legislator, Senator Loren Legarda co-authored various laws and established programs in support of her advocacies under the acronym L.O.R.E.N.

Law, Order & Good Governance
To provide a more secured environment for our people, Loren co-authored the following measures: the Anti Money Laundering Law (RA 9160), National Service Training Program (9163), Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act (RA 9165), and the Government Procurement Reform Act (9184), among others. Loren likewise championed the rights and welfare of Overseas Filipinos. Believing that they are indeed the modern-day heroes, Loren pushed for the passage of the Overseas Absentee Voting Act (RA 9189), the Citizenship Retention and Reacquisition Act (RA 9225) and the law providing for additional benefits and privileges to Balikbayan (RA 9174).

Rights of Women and Children
With her commitment to serve the most vulnerable members of the society, Loren places special interest in protecting the rights and promoting the welfare of women, youth, and children, including those who were victims of sexual coercion during the Second World War, commonly known as "comfort women". Her dedication to this cause enabled her to develop leadership with a heart, leadership with passion and determination, with subtlety and firmness, drawing her concerns from her being a woman and a mother. As such, she co-authored the Domestic Violence Act (RA 9262), Anti-Abuse of Women in Intimate Relationships Act (RA 9262), the Magna Carta for the Working Children (RA 9231) and the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act which was passed into law as RA 9208.

Education
In as much as Loren believes that literacy is a fundamental human right, she also acknowledges the urgent need for a collaborative effort between the government and non-government entities involved in literacy promotion. While accessibility and literacy are basic problems inherent to every society, the Philippines is also burdened with the lack of good quality education. Despite the existence of various laws and programs that aim to improve this, much still needs to be done to see their effects at the grassroots level. Among the measures co-authored by Loren which were enacted into law were: the Early Childhood Care and Development (RA 9890), Negros State College of Agriculture (RA 9141), National Apiculture Research, Trainimk8m,h bng and Development Institute (RA 9151), Leyte State University (RA 9158), and the Cebu International School (RA 9190).

Environment A lover of the environment, Loren started her campaign for environmental protection and preservation during her stint as a broadcast journalist. During her incumbency as Senator, she actively espoused for the passage of important environmental measures such as the Philippine Clean Air Act (RA 8749) and Ecological Solid Waste Management Act (RA 9003). Apart from this, she also espoused the clean up of toxic waste left behind by former US bases in Subic and Clark, and has helped provide medical assistance to children victims of toxic waste contamination. Among her co-authored laws on environmental protection are: Mt. Kitanglad Range Protected Area (RA 8978), Batanes Group of Islands Protected Area (Ra 8991), and the Conservation and Protection of Wildlife Resources Act (RA 9147).

Employment & Entrepreneurship
Loren recognizes the constitutional mandate that labor is a primary social economic force and that the rights of workers must be protected and their welfare be promoted. One of the first laws she co-authored was the establishment of the Public Employment Service Office (RA 8759) in all capital towns, key cities and other strategic areas nationwide. Now in the Fourteenth Congress, as Chair of the Economic Affairs Committee, Loren sponsored the amendments to the Magna Carta for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (RA 9501) to generate employment and economic activities and essentially spur growth in the countryside.

Nationalism
Loren believes that nationalism necessarily translates to love for what we have and who we have become as a nation. It is important that this sense of nationhood be nurtured by the unity of intention and oneness of motive of our people to see our country be great again. Therefore, all efforts towards national reconciliation and healing must be pursued, particularly through legislation that seeks to recognize the richness of culture, the uniqueness of our diversity as a people, and the role played by Filipinos who have labored to preserve our culture through our history of forebears. In line with this, she co-authored the declaration of Eid´l Fitr as a national holiday (RA 9177) and likewise co-sponsored the declaration of June 30 of every year as the Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day (RA 9187).

You know, the superior officials of our government are the main culprits on why lots of great, potential laws are stalled in deadlock.

If they were just pushing the enactment of these bills far harder, we wouldn't have a problem with our country right now.

the lax attitude of most of our officials are the reason why great lawmakers like Legarda sought higher office. They seem to be the ones capable of pulling the trick on how to make our country a beautiful and progressive one that it used to be.

Someone like Legarda is more befitting to seat on a higher office. That said, Loren for VP is one of the best options for the voters.
