Assembly Calls on Executive to Submit the Financial Bill

Uasin Gishu County Assembly has raised concern over delay by the CEC Finance and Economic Planning to forward the proposed Uasin Gishu County Finance Bill 2016.

While moving the Motion, Hon. Jeremiah Sang MCA Kamagut Ward said that County Government of Uasin Gishu through the Department of Finance and Economic Planning should submit the Proposed County Finance Bill 2016 to the County Assembly without further delay.  “The House and the public  must deliberate on  the Finance Bill as soon as possible within the  14 days before it is published.’’ Sang said.  He pointed out that if the assembly does not pass the bill before 30th, the County will suffer, as the revenue taxes will not be collected.

When seconding the Motion, Hon. Amos Kiptanui urged the Members to work extra hard when the C.E.C brings the Bill to the Assembly as there was little time left.

Honourable  Pauline Tuwei  Kapseret MCA  said,`` Members of the Public  were complaining that  they were not  involved in the last Financial Year 2015-2016 and as an Assembly I want to urge   Members   to pass this motion to  the CEC Finance’’ .
