Two Members of the House of Representatives have written a request to have the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning submit an Outturn Report, a Fiscal Deficiency Report for Fiscal Year 2019/2020, and 2020/2021 and Revenue Generation Report for the last two budget years.
They include; Hanson Kiazolu, of Montserrado District#17 Representative and Rustonlyn Dennis of Montserrado District# 4 Representative.
In a joint communication to Plenary Thursday, January 27, 2022 the lawmakers said, those reports when submitted to the House will establish that the approved appropriations by the Legislature to Government Ministries and Agencies had been given and cash outlay commensurate with those appropriations.
Representatives Kiazolu and Dennis observed that there have been complaints from some Ministries and Agencies of not receiving what has been appropriated to them by the Legislature.
The lawmakers then argued that as Representatives of the people, they need to know what is happening to the funding that should have been used to liquidate those appropriations.
Meanwhile, Plenary has mandated its Committee on Ways, Means, Finance& Development Planning to take seize of the matter and ensure that the Ministry of Finance make the reports available to members of the House of Representatives within two weeks.
