Dominguez weighs proposed ‘Bayanihan 3’

Finance Secretary Carlos G. Dominguez III said they are evaluating this year’s national budget to determine whether there is need to augment it to help the victims of the recent typhoons that ravaged Luzon and parts of the Visayas.

 “We are in the process of evaluating the damage of the series of typhoons and the amounts required to address these, and will determine whether or not the current budget will be sufficient,” Dominguez told reporters in a mobile phone message.

On Monday, Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto raised the possibility of passing another Bayanihan law this year to help the people affected by recent typhoons “Quinta,” “Rolly,” “Siony,” “Tonyo,” and “Ulysses.”
