SP approves PGNV’s CY2023 budget
The members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Nueva Vizcaya (SPNV), led by Vice Governor and Presiding Officer Jose V. Gambito unanimously approved on their 3rd and final reading of the proposed budget of the Provincial Government of Nueva Vizcaya (PGNV) for the Calendar Year 2023 during their en banc session held on November 14, 2022 at the Provincial Capitol.
Covering their requisite legislative acquiescence is Provincial Appropriation Act No. 2022-01, or “An Ordinance enacting and authorizing the Provincial Appropriation Act of Nueva Vizcaya for Fiscal Year 2023 in the total amount of P2,074,592,302.18 covering various expenditures for the operation of the Provincial Government for Fiscal Year 2022 and appropriating the necessary funds for the purpose”.
Heads of the different PGNV offices were also present to witness the proceedings, along with members of the Local Finance Committee (LFC) who were invited by the SPNV, through Secretary Moises Dominick G. Ruam, Jr., to serve like “amici curiae”.
Provincial Accountant Yunisa D. Patricio, expressed her appreciation for the swift action by the honorable VG Gambito and SPNV members on the final output of the Ad Hoc Committee on the 2023 Annual Budget Authorization (AC2023), headed by Floor Leader Patricio F. Dumlao, Jr., that painstakingly worked with the LFC, and heads of PGNV offices and some national government agencies that are drawing some funding support from the PGNV.
“This is indeed the fastest legislative action on a provincial budget that I have ever witnessed during my stint as Provincial Accountant”, she said.
The Ordinance and supporting documents will be immediately endorsed to Governor Carlos M. Padilla for his approval prior to their submission to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).
The August body also took cognizance of the observations of some of its members concerning the reporting and analysis of accomplishments of PGNV offices vis-a-vis their targets, and the need to formalize certain SPNV requests that cropped up during the deliberations of the AC2023.
