BATANGAS CITY, January 7 (PIA) -- With the approval of the 2012 provincial annual budget of the province of Batangas amounting to P2.2 billion, the implementation this year of the different programs and projects planned under the HEARTS program of the provincial government is expected to speed up.

Through a special session held December 19, the members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) of Batangas Province approved in unison the P2.2 billion provincial annual budget for this year.

The more than P2 billion 2012 Provincial General Appropriation Act was presented by the provincial board to Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto with officials and employees of the provincial government witnessing the occasion.

The governor in accepting the approved annual budget thanked the provincial board led by Vice Governor Mark Leviste and the provincial employees for the continuous support to her administration. Because of the ceaseless good relationship between the legislative and executive branches in the province, development projects are implemented more effectively and immediately.
