to city mayors fight at SC


Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said he supports the 13 city mayors of Negros Occidental 101 percent in their opposition to the recent act of the Supreme Court granting cityhood to 16 “unqualified” municipalities.

The Negros city mayors are joining their counterparts from around the country in a “flip-flop outrage” to be staged in front of the Supreme Court on March 9.

The governor said the 13 Negros Occidental cities stand to lose about P700 million from their Internal Revenue Allotment shares, and not just P600 million that was the estimate three years ago.moremoremore
