Senator Panfilo Lacson has once again brought up the topic regarding the removal or reallocation of the pork barrel.
The pork barrel, is an allocated fund given by the government to legislators to secure localized projects and win votes.
The issue was raised after Senators and Congressmen alike were challenged to surrender their pork barrel’s to fund the governments knew program granting full subsidy to tuition in state universities and colleges (SUC).
Sen. Lacson also proposed the usage of the government’s ‘unused’ funds to support SUC’s.
Sen. Lacson is known for being the only political affiliate who has never accepted any pork barrel allocation.
