Maminusan ilang IRA, maong miprotesta.Ang sa Ipil,Sibugay madugangan ba o makuhaan? IRA lang bang saligan sa usa ka syudad? O ang healthy competion sa mga syudad makapalagsik sa ekonomiya, mga initiative ug enterpreneurship sa mga tawo mogawas, kon dili na mahikot sa dependence sa IRA nga hatag sa gobyerno. Hinoon,gikan pud sa tax (40%)tax sa mga tawo. Pero, unsaon pag-apod-apod sa IRA? Unsa pagpalagsik sa ekonomiya? Pangutana pa lang,kay padayon pa sa pagresearch.


Cities’ protests to stay until moratorium--Iloilo mayor

ILOILO CITY, Philippines -- Flags were flown at half mast at the city halls of Iloilo and Passi on Monday as city government employees joined the continuing protests of the League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) against the creation of more cities.

City hall employees wore black arm bands with the slogan "IRA Ibalik" (Return the IRA). Others wore black shirts to dramatize their demand to stop the conversion of towns into cities even if these had yet to meet the income requirements set by law, because of the drop in the cities' share in the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA).

The IRA is the tax share of local governments, which get 40 centavos of every peso in taxes collected by the government.

LCP chairman, Iloilo Mayor Jerry Treñas, who led the flag raising ceremonies, explained to the employees the reason for the protest and the impact the creation of 16 cities in 2007 would have on the IRA share of Iloilo.

The city's IRA share dropped by P36 million because of the new cities, he said. [more]newsinfo(dot)inquirer(dot)net/breakingnews/regions/view/20080204-116733/Cities-protests-to-stay-until-moratorium--Iloilo-mayor
