Belaro appealed to the members of the House contingent in the Bicam the ensure funding for the scheduled fourth tranche of the salary standardization increases for 30,000 faculty in the state universities and colleges (SUCs) down to about 700,000 teachers in public school basic education, and for other government employees.

The party-list solon is hopeful that the delay in the pay hikes because of the briefly re-enacted budget will be limited to this month of January.

Belaro noted the Senate has approved the funding this year’s component of National Budget Circular 61 under their version of the 2019 GAA.

“For the good of the national economy, it is my hope that the 2019 budget can indeed take effect in February so that any slowdown in government spending this month can be offset and economic targets for 2019 can be achieved,” said Belaro.
