Danilo Suarez: Gov’t depriving Filipinos with needed services due to underspending
Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez said the government’s track record of underspending has left him “concerned” that the P3.757-trillion proposed budget for 2019 would be underutilized again.
The Quezon politiko said it is “challenging” for him to trust that “government agencies will spend their respective budgets efficiently.”
Suarez said most government agencies underspent their budget in 2017.
He explained this means government agencies are “depriving” Filipinos of the services they need.
“I have been consistent about my stand against inexplicable underspending and low absorptive capacity of government agencies. To me, failure to spend the budget efficiently means depriving the people with the basic goods and services from the government,” Suarez said.
