A budget reform bill by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson seeks to give local government units an active role in nation building by providing them with much-needed funding for their development projects.
Senate Bill 40, dubbed the Budget Reform for Village Empowerment Act of 2016, lets territorial and political subdivisions enjoy meaningful local autonomy to attain their fullest development as self-reliant communities.
“By giving the LGUs the necessary wherewithal to be active participants in the development of our country, we will end the culture of mendicancy and political patronage that viciously thrive in our system. Ultimately, this will help us realize the elusive inclusive growth that we all aspire for as a nation,” he said, adding the bill seeks to distribute funds equitably among national government agencies and LGUs.
