The Senate Finance Committee has rescheduled its hearing on the Disbursement Acceleration Program from July 21 to July 24, 2014.

Sen. Chiz Escudero, finance committee chairman, said Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Secretary Florencio Abad wrote the committee requesting to be allowed to testify before the senate panel on July 30, citing that the DBM is heavily swamped with preparations for the national budget drafting.

“Yes we understand that the budget season is here. We considered and thus agreed to postpone the hearing but only until July 24 and with the understanding that Secretary Abad should be there,” Escudero said.

In his letter, Abad indicated that the DBM is “in the midst of finalizing the Proposed 2015 Budget and the President’s Budget Message in preparation for submission to Congress” on July 30 as part of the reasons for the postponement request.

He also said they are also involved in drafting the president’s speech for the State of the Nation Address on July 28.
