LEONARDIA SAYS
PDAF good if properly used
BY CARLA GOMEZ

Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia said the Priority Development Assistance Fund allocated to congressmen is necessaryfor them to be able to bring projects to their districts.

 “I believe the PDAF is good, per se, the problem is there might have been some who misused it in the past,” he said.

To rectify this, safety nets could be put in to ensure that abuse of the PDAF can be prevented, he said.

Some kind of rulecould be put in place where those found violating the use of their PDAF cannot avail of it again, he said.*CPG
