MANILA – Senator Christopher “Bong” Go urged the executive branch to ensure that public funds are spent properly as President Rodrigo Duterte recently signed the 2022 General Appropriations Act.

“Dapat po’y walang masayang na ni piso sa kaban ng bayan. Tiyakin nating magiging kasangkapan ang pondo ng gobyerno upang mapadali ang pagbangon ng ating bansa sa pagpasok ng bagong taon,” said Go in a radio interview on Thursday, December 30.

“Kaya hinihimok ko po ang mga kasamahan ko sa gobyerno na gamitin nang tama ang pondong inilaan upang agarang maihatid ang serbisyo at tulong sa mga nararapat nating mga kababayan, sa ating mga mamamayan,” he stressed.

The senator noted that the budget is crucial for the success of the government’s pandemic response and recovery efforts for the areas devastated by Typhoon Odette. He also stressed that the funds will be geared towards the country’s economic recovery and growth.

“Not only sa COVID response dahil ito pong mga biktima po ng Typhoon Odette, inaasahan natin dahil kulang talaga ‘yung pondo nung 2021 — ‘yung disaster fund, ‘yung calamity fund po ng national government kulang na po, P2 bilyon na lang natitira (sa 2021),” Go said.
