Competing Interests Must Not Delay Budget Passage

The passage of the 2014/2015 National Budget may be for a long haul, if what’s emerging on Capitol Hill between the Liberian Senate and House of Representatives over the proposed US$1m per district by the latter for district development is not amicably settled.
