I asked the COMELEC to make a request to DBM and give a copy to the Finance Committee so we can look for funding. The proposed 2019 budget of the COMELEC is deemed submitted by the Committee, subject to the amendments that the Committee will propose.

The COMELEC also requested an additional funding of P857-Million for the Plebiscite in connection with the Bangsamoro Organic Law, which will be held in January 2019. Their third request is P3-Million additional to the P189-Million approved budget in the NEP for Overseas Voting.

During elections, our teachers face risks and work very long hours. The ESRA law ensures their safety and proper compensation.

Chair Abas requested additional funding not provided in the NEP. The first is P1.5-Billion to cover the honorarium of teachers on election duty, as mandated in the new Election Service Reform Act or ESRA which was enacted in 2016.

I also requested DTI to work with the Dept of Agriculture in overseeing the process of handling rice so we can limit wastage. During the budget hearing with the DA last week, Philrice said that about 800k metric tons of milled rice was wasted last year.

The P1-B SSF fund under the DTI in the 2018 GAA was intended for the ff: P50-M for Marawi, P150-M for State Universities and Colleges Extension Programs, and P800-M for OTOP and MSMEs all over the country. I asked DTI to submit a list of equipment given and its recipients.

The DTI, led by Sec. Mon Lopez, is requesting additional funding for their SSF and DTI Negosyo Center programs. I requested them to submit a breakdown of their accomplishment for the P1-B SSF funding for 2018.

We can put funding under the DA or DENR and earmark it for the utilization of land not being utilized under SPDA and MINDA. We will also look at the budgets of the agencies I mentioned to see if they have attended to the needs of these areas in Mindanao.

I asked the agencies present in the hearing, specifically SPDA and MINDA, to submit to the committee this week, their inventory of land and water resources, ongoing projects, self-sustaining operations and possible collaborations with either DA or the DENR.

As I am about to end my third term, I want to ensure that all land assets and resources under these agencies will be utilized to provide livelihood, income and food for the communities. Every square foot of unused land is wastage for a family that is hungry.
