I stand for greater empowerment of local government units and establishment of regional clusters for increased economic benefits at the grassroots.
I therefore propose the amendments to the Local Government Code that will accomplish the following:
- Increase allocation of Internal Revenue Allotment based on performance and its automatic release to local government units (LGUs)
- Create a Police Youth Reserve Corps to help in peace, order and disaster response
- Establish and support Community Colleges offering courses attuned to their needs of communities where that are located; LGUs with the most resources will shoulder a greater part of the funding for community colleges, while LGUs with the least resources will receive a greater share of funding assistance from the national government
