Scioli denies cuts, delays in government's shared-revenue funding
Buenos Aires province Governor Daniel Scioli confirmed that there are no delays or cuts with the shared-revenue funding from the national government -also known as ‘co-participation funds’- received by his administration.“I’d like to back what the Economy Minister, Hernán Lorenzino, said about the budget distribution funds. There haven’t been any cuts or delays in the sending of the federal revenue-sharing funds. Everything has been normal so far.”
Likewise, the governor praised the “historic level of investments this government has reached including some crucial social factors like the ‘Child Allowance’ and ‘Equal Connectivity’ programmes, as well investments in infrastructure and education areas. We have inaugurated 200 new schools within the BA province so far.
Scioli made the statements during the inauguration of a Primary Scholl in the North Western Greater BA district of San Martín.
