2013 Budget Proposal

Funding Cuts at the State and Federal level are posing significant budgeting challenges for municipalities across the U.S.
● Nearly 48% of cities plan to reduce workforce this year ● Los Angeles predicts over 200 City jobs will be eliminated due to budgetary challenges

● San Bernardino closing all but one library and reducing 100 jobs including Police and Fire positions
● The State of Louisiana is not meeting its obligation to fund District Attorney, Indigent Defender, or mental health

We must continue to take action to be smart about how we get smaller

2013 Budget Proposal

In 2012 we used a rigorous, cross-team approach to address revenue and spending variances
● Revenue forecast declined by over $14M in March and June RECs for 2012
○ Entergy – Lower natural gas prices reduced franchise fee and utility tax by $6.3M ○ Traffic Safety – Policy changes reduced forecast by $3.7M ○ Sales Tax – Lower 2011 audited revenues reduced forecast by $3.8M, though strong performance in 2012 revenues added $0.5M back

● Adjustments in 2012 to address revenue forecast decline
○ Debt service of $8.3M not required due to late 2011 refunding ○ 3.8% holdback from department budgets totaled $5.2M ○ Debt service of $4.1M in late 2012 not required due to Oct 2012 refinancing

February 2014 INTRODUCTION “…a budget is a useful tool to help ensure that what limited money is available will be spent for the family’s most important needs, like food, clothing and shelter.” -Florencio Abad Secretary, Department of Budget and Management Every household knows that their budget is indispensable, important and has the capability to turn and mobilize their life around. Every day, millions of Filipinos work just for a meager share to eat, drink, and live, and tomorrow, work again to live for a day. Yet reality, tells us that many still suffer and live in difficult conditions. The National Statistics Coordination Board (NCSB) reported that in 2012, 4.2 million Filipino families experienced or lived in poverty or that is 19.2% percent. The same report also stated that a family of five needed a budget of PhP 5,513 to meet basic food needs every month and Php 7,890 to stay above the poverty threshold (basic food and non-food needs) every month. Such can be attributed to the inflation rise to 4.1 % from the year 2009-2012. What could have caused this statistic to be constant and rise up even more? Is there lack in financial stewardship and accountability on the part of Filipinos? Or......

...Evaluating the Involvement of Philippine National Police in Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in Boracay, Malay, Aklan, Philippines Kenneth D. Barrientos1 Department of Environmental Science, Aklan State University- Ibajay, 5613 Aklan, Philippines barrientos.kenneth@asu.edu.ph Abstract The Armed Forces are front liners during disaster incidence. They are the first respondent due to force readily available and the easiest way for the government to deploy immediately. Hence, this paper evaluated the extent of the involvement of Philippine National Police in Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in Boracay Island, Malay, Aklan, Philippines. A self-administered questionnaire was utilized to solicit information from the seventy-six (76) police officers of Boracay. Collected data were sequentially analyzed using appropriate statistical tools such as frequency count, percentage, rank, mean, standard deviation and paired T-test for significant differences. The demographic profile of the respondents indicated that majority of the respondents are young, male officers who have served the department for less than eight (8) years, but had attended limited training on disaster management. Results also indicated that there was a “high involvement” among police officers in Boracay in terms of Disaster Preparedness and Disaster Response. However, data shows that Disaster Recovery and Mitigation are “moderately involved” by the respondents. One of the most......

Public Fiscal Administration

...encyclopedia Fiscal policy refers to the "measures employed by governments to stabilize the economy, specifically by manipulating the levels and allocations of taxes and government expenditures. Fiscal measures are frequently used in tandem with monetary policy to achieve certain goals."[1] In the Philippines, this is characterized by continuous and increasing levels of debt and budget deficits, though there have been improvements in the last few years.[2] The Philippine government’s main source of revenue are taxes, with some non-tax revenue also being collected. To finance fiscal deficit and debt, the Philippines relies on both domestic and external sources. Fiscal policy during the Marcos administration was primarily focused on indirect tax collection and on government spending on economic services and infrastructure development. The first Aquino administration inherited a large fiscal deficit from the previous administration, but managed to reduce fiscal imbalance and improve tax collection through the introduction of the 1986 Tax Reform Program and the value added tax. The Ramos administration experienced budget surpluses due to substantial gains from the massive sale of government assets and strong foreign investment in its early years. However, the implementation of the 1997 Comprehensive Tax Reform Program and the onset of the Asian financial crisis resulted to a deteriorating fiscal position in the succeeding years and administrations. The Estrada......
