President Benigno Aquino III has signed the P14.6-billion supplemental budget for 2014 to fund relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction efforts in areas affected last year by super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) and a magnitude-7.2 quake.

In a media briefing, Presidential Communications Operations Office head Herminio Coloma Jr. said the President signed the budget last Dec. 26.

"On Dec. 26, it was signed.....Pinirmahan na ang joint resolution ng both houses of Congress for the supplemental allocation of P14.6 billion (It was signed Dec. 26. This was the joint resolution by both houses of Congress for the allocation of P14.6 billion)," Coloma said.

Yolanda, which tore through Visayas and Southern Luzon last November, left more than 6,100 dead.

The supplemental budget will also help survivors of other devastating cyclones. It will fund the P40.9-billion rehabilitation plan President Aquino had approved.

Coloma said the rehabilitation plan had gone through several revisions and "various stages
of refinement." (PND)
