2019 budget impasse: Lacson in the scourge of RashomonBy MAURO GIA SAMONTEhome/Opinion/Op-Ed Columns/2019 budget impasse: Lacson in the scourge of RashomonPARDON, but I am a film director and my cinematic impulses are immediately at work with the controversy over the 2019 budget raging on. We have this impasse between the House of Representatives and the Senate over the P3.75 trillion General Appropriations Act of 2019. On the current budget controversy, I don’t want to think that Senator Lacson is being motivated by wanting to deal to GMA what he feels to be her due. Because expenditure for the project is covered by the 2019 budget bill. initiative perforce requires the 2019 national budget for every facet of their implementation — as it would for the coming years on end.
