Tydings-McDuffie law is a United States federal law that established the Philippines' process, then an American colony to be converted into an independent country after a ten-year transition period. Under the act, the Philippines' 1935 constitution was written, and the commonwealth of the Philippines was created, with the first directly established limitations on Filpino immigration to the United States.

The act came to fruition in the 73rd United States Congress. It specified a procedural outline for drafting a constitution for the government of the commonwealth of the Philippines within two years of its ratification. The act authorized US recognition of the Philippine Islands' independence as a separate and self-governing nation after a ten-year transition period.

The Tydings Mcduffie Law is also known as the Philippines Independence Act. This is a type of federal law that has allowed the Philippines to become independent from other countries after it has been under the United States for 10 years. Take note that even before the Americans came, the Philippines was colonized by Spain for 333 years.

The Philippines worked very hard in order to get their independence from other countries that tried to enslave them. This law was granted by Theodore Roosevelt in the year 1934 before it was sent to the senate of the Philippines to get approved. It was approved on May 1 of the same year.

Tydings-McDuffie law, which is also referred to as the Tydings-McDuffie act can also be called the Philippine Independent Act, officially. This is a law in the United States that made the Philippines, and then an American colony, undergo a ten year transition period to become an independent country.

The constitution of the Philippines that was written in 1935 established the commonwealth of the Philippines, and also led to the election of their first elected president. This law also reduces the rate at which the Filipinos migrate to the United States. Representative John McDuffie (Dem.) of Alabama and Senator Millard E. Tydings of Maryland authored the act in the 73rd United States Congress.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt was the one that signed it into law. The Tydings–McDuffie law or act created a specific procedural framework by which the commonwealth of the Philippines would draft a constitution for the government within two years of enactment.
