Zambales exec made his own budget woes

By Malou Dungog, MT Central Luzon Bureau

IBA, Zambales: Contrary to his claim that he was being persecuted by provincial government officials, Vice Governor Ramon Lacbain of this province has no budget for his office simply because he failed to submit a budget proposal to the provincial council.

Gov. Vicente Magsaysay said Lacbain did not submit a budget proposal for his office when the budget of the province for the year 2005 was being deliberated upon although he was the presiding officer of the Sanggunian Panlalawigan.

Instead of submitting his budget proposal, Magsaysay said Lacbain opted to solicit funds from the private sector and national government agencies to finance his projects in the province.

“Lacbain appears to want us to give him a budget without the approval of Sangguniang Panla­lawigan, but that is forbidden. If I still need to seek the approval of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan even as governor, what more the vice governor?” Magsaysay said.

Upon unanimous accord, the Sangguniang Panglalawigan directed Lacbain to submit his operational budget proposal for 2005 for review, deliberation and approval by the members of the provincial board. However, the vice governor has not complied with the directive.

Resolution 2005-76 of the Sangguniang Panglalawigan, which the council passed during its regular session on March 14, directed Lacbain to submit his budget proposal for a supplemental budget
