| Congresswoman Robredo files Full Disclosure Bill |
As promised, Camarines Sur Third District Representative Leni Robredo’s first order of business is to legislate the endeavors of her late husband Jesse M. Robredo during his tenure as Secretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).
This morning, Rep. Robredo filed the Full Disclosure Bill: the bill seeks to mandate all government agencies including its instrumentalities to conspicuously disclose their budget and financial transactions without any requests from the public. This will allow people to access the data at any time without any burden of technicalities and bureaucracy.
The principle behind the transparency efforts stemmed from DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2010-83 issued in August 2010 ordering LGUs and DILG regional offices to report their finances as well as bids and public offerings.
Separate versions of this bill were also filed by Senator Franklin Drilon and former Representative Joseph Emilio Abaya in January 2011 and August 2012, respectively.
In her explanatory note, Rep. Robredo emphasized the importance of being knowledgeable about “how government funds are managed, disbursed, and used.” She reiterated “[government] funds are the hard-earned money of the people that should be spent judiciously and only for the common good.”
“[Financial disclosure] will augment our people’s efforts in creating a more transparent and accountable government,” said Rep. Robredo.
Ipinagpapatuloy ni CONG. ROBREDO ang adhikain ng kanyang asawa at maaring may punto kayo na maaring may foul play sa nangyari kay sec. Robredo noon dahil maaring my nadiskubre sya noon lalo n kay puno. At kung may mga umangal sa bill na ito isa lang ang ibig sabhn may itinatago ang mga buwaya sa kongreso at senado at lahat ng sangay ng gobyerno.
Ang mga Representatives ng Congress at Senate na hindi boboto dito ay mga Corrupt Politician, na ang mga pangalan ay kailangang ma publish agad sa listahan ng mga di bumoto, at tiyaking wag na ring iboto pa sa 2016!
Transparency is clearest form of truthful governance. let us extend full support to this intent.
