By: L.N. Reklai
(Koror, Palau) Some Senators took to airwaves yesterday to explain their rejection of SB 9-149, SD1, particularly the proposed budget for the upcoming inauguration of the 10th government of the Republic of Palau.
With no budget for 2017 inauguration and with the government operating on a Continuing Budget resolution, House of Delegates during their special session inserted the budget for the 2017 Inauguration of $250,000 unto a Senate bill 9-149,SD1, a bill to regulate childcare and passed it on its 3rd reading.
