PROJECTS in rural development, health and education will get priority allocations from the solons’ pork barrel funds.
Rep. Erico Aristotle Aumentado yesterday reoriented the mayors, municipal engineers, development and planning coordinators, health officials and school principals of Bohol’s 2nd District in a meeting at the Kiddie’s Farm in Calanggaman, Ubay town.
The solon tapped Joseph Rañola, president of the Center for National Budget, to provide the details for transparent budgeting, how the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) is allocated to the solons and the limits of disbursements set for each year for different government sectors.
The solon said the reorientation provided guidance to the participants on which projects to prioritize this year given limited government resources.
