Vic San Agustin in hos column for Interaksyon.com quoted Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno as saying that Robredo was “very happy” even with the budget cut.
This is because the allotment for the two agencies she is heading will be increased.
Agustin said that the combined budgets of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) and Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (HLURB) will increase by P59 million for next year. MJM
