President Benigno Aquino 3rd has signed a P 14.6-billion supplemental budget for 2014, the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) said on Thursday.
PCOO Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said the President signed the joint resolution of both Houses of Congress last Dec. 26.
Coloma said the supplemental budget will be used in the various projects of the Aquino administration, including the rehabilitation efforts in places ravaged by super typhoon Yolanda.
“Simula naman po noong tinatalakay ito sa Gabinete ay walang humpay iyong pagsulong nitong programang ito going to various stages of refinement, concretization, fleshing out at ngayon nga po ay meron na tayong Presidential Assistant on Recovery and Reconstruction na isinusulong din po ang programang iyan,” Coloma said.
The President signed the 2014 national budget which amounts to P 2.265 trillion last Dec. 20. PNA
