In 1997, House Bill 8931: An Act Converting the Municipality of Casmariñas into a City to be known as the City of Dasmariñas was filed by Congressman Renato P. Dragon. Unfortunately, it did not push though as a Republic Act. Again in year 2000, House Bill 7478: An Act Converting the Municipality of Dasmariñas, Cavite into a Component City to be known as “The City of Dasmariñas” was filed by Congressman Ireneo S. Maliksi, but was unsuccessful for the second time.

The idea of converting Dasmariñas into a Component City was once more proposed after fruitless attempts in 1997 and 2000. On October 3, 2008, Cogressman Elpidio F. Barzaga, Jr. filed House Bill 5258 converting the Municipality of Dasmariñas into a Component City. It was approved by the House on its Second and Third Reading on October 7 and November 17 of 2008 respectively. It was passed by the Senate on its Second and Third Reading on October 28 and November 5 2009. October 15, 2009, the President of the Republic of the Philippines, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo signed Republic Act 9723: An Act Converting the Municipality of Dasmariñas in the Province of Cavite into a Component City to be known as the City of Dasmariñas. On November 25, 2009, a plebiscite was conducted to ratify the conversion of the Municipality of Dasmariñas into a Component City pursuant to Republic Act 7923. With an 82% turnout of YES vote – Dasmariñas, after 12 years of its industrious undertaking, was declared as a Component City at 5:25 in the morning of November 26, 2009.
