Statement of Senator Joel Villanueva on the bicameral conference proceedings on the 2020 national budget

We are optimistic that the 2020 national budget will be passed on time as we kicked off the bicameral conference proceedings on the disagreeing provisions on the general appropriations bill this morning. The committee's sentiment to finalize the national budget immediately is unanimous, and we appreaciate the determination of our colleagues from the House of Representatives to work on one of the most important piece of legislation Congress is mandated to pass. Our sustained economic growth depends on the swift passage of our national budget, and we hope for its immediate signing as soon as it is sent to the President for his approval.
