MANILA, Philippines —  The Senate unanimously ratified on Wednesday the proposed P4.1-trillion national budget  for 2020.

No senator objected when Senator Sonny Angara, chairman of the Senate committee on finance, moved to adopt the  bicameral conference committee report on the budget.

This, despite Senator Panfilo Lacson’s earlier allegation that the House of Representatives made last minute insertions on the budget before the bicam approval.


The House also ratified the bicameral report.

Now that the budget bill was ratified by the two chambers, it can now be transmitted to President Rodrigo Duterte for signature.
