Cha-cha, budget top House agenda
At the Senate, Sen. Manuel Roxas II, a member of the committee on finance, said yesterday that he is ready to roll up his sleeves and use a fine-tooth comb to examine the budget when session resumes Monday. "We, as legislators, are given by the Constitution the important power of the purse, to set direction for the country through the allocation of resources," Roxas said. "This power should be taken seriously and resources should be spent wisely for the benefit of every Filipino."
