PingBills | BRAVE Bill ni Ping, Rektahan ang Pagbigay ng Pondo sa LGUs

Logo BRAVE

Rektang pagkakaloob sa mga lokal na pamahalaan ang pondo para sa kanilang proyektong pampamayanan. Ito ang pangunahing nilalaman ng Senate Bill 23 o ang proposed Budget Reform for Village Empowerment (BRAVE) Act of 2019 na isinulong ni Senador Panfilo Lacson.

Ito ang nakikitang solusyon ng mambabatas upang matapos na ang mistulang pamamalimos ng mga pinuno ng LGU mula sa mga malalayong lalawigan at bayan sa mga tanggapan ng mga senador at kongresista, at maging sa mga sangay ng pamahalaan, para lamang maambunan ng pondo ang kanilang mga proyekto.

Lacson Readies More Headway vs ‘Pork,’ Warped Budgeting Process

DPWH_Committee Hearing_Nov12 (1)-16
Drones may again play a major role in helping Sen. Lacson check ‘pork’ projects in the 2019 budget, like in 2018. This year, Lacson is aiming to make greater headway against ‘pork’ and the warped budget process.

After seeing some progress this year, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is eyeing more headway against “pork” and other flaws in the warped budgeting process that has allowed it to thrive.

Lacson said making sure the budgeting process is followed properly will prevent “pork” by having district representatives in Congress take part in planning at the local level, instead of inserting projects after Malacanang has already submitted its version of the budget – the National Expenditure Program – to Congress.

“It is high time we eliminate the obvious disconnect between the needs and priorities of the countryside local government units and the expenditure program at the national level, due to the absence of consultations,” Lacson said.

“Because of this disconnect, district representatives – instead of attending and participating in the formulation of local development plans within their districts, where they are members of the Local Development Councils – opt to arbitrarily make insertions during the authorization phase, without due regard to the needs and priorities of the LGUs within their districts,” he added.
