Grand Bassa Gets US$5m for Legislative Projects

By Johnson Liway, Intern

BUCHANAN, Feb 6 (LINA) - Grand Bassa County Senator, Nyonblee Karngar Lawrence, has said US$5 million has been placed in the 2013/2014 budget for Legislative Projects in the county.

According to Senator Karngar Lawrence, US$68,000 dollars of this amount is earmarked for Buchanan District.

She told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday that the Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) will implement the projects.

Senator Lawrence said from the US$5 million, Representative Mary Karwor has recommended the construction of a school building in District #2.

She has, however, frowned on the way the Social Development Fund had been used in the past, noting: “It has made no impact on the lives of the ordinary Bassa people.”

Meanwhile, Senator Karngar Lawrence has blamed lawmakers for not properly exercising their oversight role in the expenditure of the County Development Fund.

She recommended that those who misuse the County Development Fund and Social Development Fund be punished or prosecuted.

The County Development Fund is an allocation from the National Budget for projects at the county level, while the Social Development Fund is money contributed by concessions as part of their social responsibility assistance.
