December 4, 2017

Senator Loren Legarda, Chair of the Senate Committee on Finance, said that the 2018 General Appropriations Bill is a pro-people and needs-based budget.

“In reviewing the 2018 national budget, we scrutinized every item to ensure that we are funding the needs of the people, that it supports the infrastructure program of the government and also takes care of the human capital so that economic growth addresses the needs of the poorest sector. When we address the basic needs of the people, we also curb crime, violence and illegal drugs,” said Legarda.
