Zero veto sigurado! Elpidio Barzaga shares tip on speedy budget passage

Feb 7, 2020 @ 16:52

Cavite Rep. Elpidio Barzaga supports House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano’s plan to coordinate closely with the Department of Budget and Management in crafting the 2021 national budget.

In a statement, Barzaga said a closer coordination with the executive branch will ensure the 2021 general appropriations bill isn’t vetoed.

“Discussing the appropriation measure’s details with lawmakers before submitting it to the House of Representatives would guarantee its expeditious passage and ensure no pork, no parking and no insertion of funds,” he said.

Frequent talks with DBM will also allow the executive and legislative branches to review the GAB before it is submitted to Congress, Barzaga added.

Cayetano earlier said Budget Secretary Wendel Avisado also wants to consult with Congress in crafting the GAB prior to its submission to the House and Senateafter President Rodrigo Duterte’s State of the Nation Address.
