Release SK funds – Albee
Negros Occidental Rep. Albee Benitez is seeking for the release of funds for the implementation of Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) projects and the honoraria of SK officials.
Their funds have not been given since they assumed office last year due to the alleged lack of Implementing Rules and Regulations and guidelines, said Benitez.
The politiko, however, said a joint circular has already been issued, only it was not disseminated to the regional offices.
Under an existing law, 10 percent of the general fund of the barangay shall be set aside for the SK.
The fund should be disbursed solely for youth development and empowerment purposes, said Benitez.
