P2.31B OVP BUDGET FOR 2023 GETS HOUSE PANEL OK

The P2.31 billion proposed budget of the Office of the Vice President (OVP) swiftly breezed through the House Committee on Appropriations chaired by AKO BICOL Party-list Representative Zaldy Co after only a 10-minute hearing.

After the opening remarks of Co, Minority Leader Marcelino Libanan moved to terminate the OVP budget briefing as a courtesy of the whole House of Representatives led by Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez and the committee members to the OVP.

Libanan said that while some members of the Makabayan Bloc would like to propound questions on some new items in the OVP budget, they would rather do so in the plenary.

Majority Leader Mannix Dalipe seconded Libanan’s motion.

Vice President Sara Duterte thanked the Members of the House of Representatives led by Speaker Romualdez “for sharing this day with the Office of the Vice President”.

Duterte also thanked the lawmakers for their continued support to the OVP budget and all the programs, activities and projects of the agency.

She said the OVP is open to collaborations in helping Filipinos.

“If there is anything that we can do to help you and your office in your respective mandates, in your respective legislative districts and party-lists, please do let us know.”
