MANILA, Philippines—There will be more, not less, pork barrel funds for congressmen under the proposed P1.645-trillion National Budget for 2011.
From P70 million for each of the 278 congressmen, the controversial Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) has in effect been increased to as much as P145 million for next year alone, a number of lawmakers confirmed Friday.
In a closed-door, all-party caucus Friday, the House leadership decided to give each representative an additional P50 million to be taken from the lump sum funds of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) as contained in its proposed budget of P90.9 billion.
“I am shocked that the DBM (Department of Budget and Management) has agreed to give all district representatives an additional P50 million each from the DPWH lump sum funds, as admitted by the House leadership to the media this (Friday) afternoon,” Bayan Muna Rep. Teddy Casiño said in an interview.Maraming karne. Maraming aadobohin. Maraming taba. Maraming tatakbo sa kongreso ulit. bwahaha. Ploink (hinimatay)
