The Palawan Pro­vin­cial Board ap­proved dur­ing its reg­u­lar ses­sion on Tues­day the P113 mil­lion sup­ple­men­tal bud­get for 2018. Board Mem­ber Leon­cio Ola, chair of the Com­mit­tee on Ap­pro­pri­a­tion, said the bud­get comes from the sav­ings of the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment for this year and will be al­lot­ted for road widen­ing, bridge, and hos­pi­tal con­struc­tions. “From sav­ings ito. Ni- re­pro­gram lang kasi hindi na na­gas­tos la­hat kaya ang gi­na­gawa sup­ple­men­tal bud­get. Oth­er­wise, baka ka­pag tu­mawid na kami ng 2019 hin- di namin naapruba­han baka magka­roon kami ng re- en­acted bud­get kaya kailan­gan be­fore the end of the last ses­sion of De­cem­ber [ ma- ap­proved na],” Ola said. In 2017, the prov­ince had a P32 mil­lion sup­ple­men­tal bud­get which was ap­pro­pri­ated for in­fra­struc­ture projects. Palawan has a pro­posed P2.8 bil­lion bud­get for 2019 that will be sub­jected to re­quired bud­get hear­ings.
