President Benigno Aquino III signed the P2.606 trillion 2015 national budget into law at Malacañang yesterday, which includes more infrastructure projects for Negros Occidental, Rep. Mercedes Alvarez (Neg. Occ., 6 th District) said.
“ I am personally happy that more infrastructure projects, specifically farm-to-market roads, highways and classrooms, are allocated for Negros, as well as social services that will augment the services of the local government units,” she said.

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday that his wish is that Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas and Senator Grace Poe will be the standard bearers of the Liberal Party in the 2016 polls, noting that their survey ratings are rising.
The latest Social Weather Station survey on who should succeed President Benigno Aquino in 2016 shows Vice President Jejomar Binay with a rating of 37 percent, Poe at 21 percent, and Roxas at 19 percent.
