Senator Panfilo Lacson is seeking the removal of the alleged pork funds inserted in the proposed 2019 national budget.

Lacson, who has detested corruption-tainted pork barrel funds, has urged President Duterte to veto the controversial budget allocations included by some lawmakers in the national budget for the year.
