Neg. Occ. gets P416M
to ease IRA cut by 50%

Only Escalante not covered

The Department of Interior and Local Government recently released P416,900,000 to the Negros Occidental provincial government, its 12 cities and 19 towns, except Escalante, to reduce their expected 2012 Internal Revenue Allotment cuts by almost one half, DILG provincial head Ma. Joy Maredith Madayag said yesterday.

Last year the Department of Budget and Management announced nationwide IRA cuts this year, with the Negros Occidental provincial government, and its 13 cities and 19 towns to face a reduction of P940,585,592, saying it was due to poor tax collections during the Arroyo administration.

But President Benigno Aquino later announced that the national government had savings to reduce the P13 billion expected cut in the 2012 IRA to P6.5 billion.moremoremore
