2019 MINDANAO BUDGET PROPOSAL
 

01 June 2018 12:05:08 PM

Members of the House committee on Mindanao affairs chaired by Rep. Maximo Rodriguez, Jr. listen as Mindanao Development Authority Policy Planning and Project Development Director Reyzaldy Tan on Thursday makes a powerpoint presentation on the proposed budget for Mindanao for 2019. The proposal was relayed to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) through Undersecretary Herman Jumilla in anticipation of the signing into law by President Rodrigo Duterte of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) proposal before his State of the Nation Address (SONA) in July. The President is expected to submit the 2019 national budget proposal to Congress during the SONA. In a previous hearing, Rodriguez said that a study by the Congressional Policy and Budget Research Department (CPBRD) showed that Mindanao received only 16.2 percent or P608 billion from the 2018 budget while its average share is only 12.8 percent for the last four years. Committee members have been batting for a 20 percent share of Mindanao in the 2019 national budget. Rep. Abdullah Dimaporo also attended the hearing. (J. Menorca/ G. Engay)
