Lacson: 'Pork barrel' should be used to fund free tuition for SUCs

Home / News / Lacson: 'Pork barrel' should be used to fund free tuition for SUCs

Sunday, August 6, Senator Panfilo Lacson said that "pork barrel" funds for 2018 national budget should be remove and use it to finance the free tuition for state universities and colleges (SUCs).

In an interview of dzBB with Senator Lacson,  he said that Congress should look for ways to fund the recently-passed law.

"Walang nilagay ang MalacaƱang [na budget], so Congress na ang maghahanap na pang-pondo para sa free tuition dahil may basehan na, may batas," he said.

"Huwag natin bawasan yung ahensya na nangangailangan ng pondo," he said.

"Sa pag-aaral namin, ito gusto ko rin i-take up sa budget deliberations, pina-finalize pa namin, pero may kongresista na nakakuha ng P5 billion, may kongresista na nakakuha ng P6 billion. Individual ito na pork barrel," Lacson said, referring to the budget from last year.

"Kung saan-saan kinukuha ito at pina-part na nila sa mga ahensya na kausap na nila yung mga head agencies. Ito ay the usual, call it any name you want pero in my book, pork barrel pa rin 'yan," he added.

"Ang hope lang sana, alisin na lang yung mga pork ng mga kongresista at mga senador at yun na lang yung ilaan budget para sa free tuition," he further said.

  1. Tama alisin ang Pork barrel para sa mga Congressman at Senators at iyan ang ilalaan sa free tuition fees sa mga scholars sa SUC's , instead na mapupunta lang ang pera sa kanilang mga bulsa
