Prov’l Board approves P113M supplemental budget
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.
