NOTHING WRONG WITH EXCESSIVE PORK-BARREL ACCORDING TO DRILON - NewspaperPH


Senate President Franklin Drilon is facing a P65-million plunder rap before the Office of the Ombudsman a week after three senators were charged in connection with the pork barrel scam. Drilon clarified that not all lump sums are illegal as some are needed for the smooth operation of the government. He also defended the government budget noted that in the past, lawmakers are given lump-sum and discretionary funds which they can eventually allocate to their preferred non-government organization partners. Drilon even admitted at some point that abolishing the pork barrel was harder than he thought because some senators were not in a hurry to give him their decision on the controversial funds.
