SP sets marathon hearings
on P4 billion NegOcc budget
BY MARK L. GARCIA

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Negros Occidental has set marathon hearings on Oct. 22 to 26 for all the departments of the provincial government on the proposed P4-billion budget for 2019, Board Member Salvador Escalante said yesterday.

Escalante, who chairs the SP Committee on Finance, said in an interview that there will be marathon hearings in every department on the third week of this month to fast-track the approval of the provincial budget for next year.

As there will be an election ban on the first quarter of 2019, his committee wants to pass the budget in mid-November this year, he said.
