Lacson, May Mala-Pederalismo na Panukala na Walang Cha-Cha

Hindi man matuloy ang Charter Change, siguradong makakamit pa rin ang mithiin na isinusulong ng Duterte administration sa ilalim ng pederalismo, sa pamamagitan ng panukala ni Senador Panfilo Lacson.

Nakapaloob na kasi sa Senate Bill 40 na tinaguriang Budget Reform Advocacy for Village Empowerment (BRAVE) at isinulong ni Lacson kasabay ng pagbukas ng kasalukuyang Kongreso ang halos lahat ng mithiin ng pederalismo.

🔈Pakinggan ang paliwanag ni Sen. Lacson sa BRAVE

Pangunahing nilalaman ng BRAVE bill ni Lacson ang direktang pagbibigay ng pondo sa mga lokal na pamahalaan upang mapondohan ng mga ito ang mga proyektong kailangan nila base sa personal na obserbasyon sa mga nasasakupan.

Lacson: BRAVE to Meet Federalism Goals Without Need to Amend the Constitution

The goals of federalism can still be met without the need to spend much time and resources to amend or revise the 1987 Constitution, if Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson’s Budget Reform Advocacy for Village Empowerment (BRAVE) bill is passed into law.

Lacson said the BRAVE bill, which is similar to federalism as it empowers local government units by giving them funding for their development projects, even gained the support of Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr.

“Parang federalism yan dahil ibababa ang karamihan ng pondo o malaking bahagi ng pondo ng national government, ilalatag papunta sa kanayunan sa probinsya nang sa ganoon matuto sila mag-develop on their own,” Lacson said in an interview on DZBB on Sunday.

🔈Listen to Sen. Lacson’s explanation of BRAVE

“Kung ito halimbawa ma-approve sa House of Representatives at Senado at ma-bicameral, ma-approve ito maging batas, masasabatas ang pagkalat ng pondo sa mga probinsya,” he added.

Lacson Pushes Web-based Monitoring for Provincial Projects

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is pushing for Web-based monitoring of the implementation of infrastructure projects at the provincial level, to ensure transparency and efficiency.

Lacson said such a system could take a cue from that being implemented in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), which uses apps like Google Maps.

“I would suggest (that this be implemented at the) provincial level. Provincial governments should replicate the ARMM’s map-based solution,” Lacson, who authored Senate Bill 40 seeking to implement budget reform by downloading resources to local governments, said at a Senate hearing.

Online Monitoring sa mga Gov’t Projects Itinulak ni Ping

Puwede nang masubaybayan ng mga mamamayan ng isang partikular na rehiyon o lalawigan sa mas madali at mabilis na paraan ang itinatakbo ng mga proyektong ipinatupad ng kanilang mga lokal na opisyal,

Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng iminumungkahi ni Senador Panfilo Lacson na pagpapatupad sa buong bansa ng sistemang ginagamit ng Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) sa pagmonitor sa mga proyekto ng rehiyon.

Sa sistema kasi na ginagamit ng ARMM ay madaling malalaman kung hanggang saang yugto na ang nararating ng isang proyekto dahil sa internet na lamang ito binibisita sa pamamagitan ng Google Map application.

Lacson Seeks Closer Look at Rural Electrification Picture

While the Department of Energy claims 100 percent of the country’s barangays now have electricity, it does not automatically mean the agency’s electrification efforts have been completed.

On this note, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson sought a closer look into the government’s rural electrification program, after learning that many sitios – enclaves far from the barangay centers – still do not have power.

“Sitios are a part of barangays. We cannot say barangays are 100 percent powered if a few sitios in those barangays still have no power,” Lacson said at a Commission on Appointments hearing for Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.
