P12 billion calamity fund proposed

Congress is seeking to set aside P12 billion as a supplemental budget to add to the national calamity fund, reports GMANews.tv.

To avoid delay in the approval of the budget, Senate finance committee chair Edgardo Angara said, "Bahala na ang line agencies mag-allocate (We will allow the agencies to make the allocations)."

As of Sept. 30, before super typhoon Pepeng descended on Northern Luzon, National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) head Gilbert Teodoro Jr. had reported that the P2 billion calamity fund was down to P24 million.
