Moye said.The Joint Committee on Ways, Means, Finance & Budget is comprised of members from the Ways, Means, Finance & Budget and Public Account & Expenditure Committees from both Houses.There are 15 members each from both Houses of the Ways, Means, Finance & Budget Committee; and seven and five members respectively from the House of Representatives and Liberian Senate.According to the Budget Law, the Liberian annual budget runs from July 1 to June 30.The acting co-chairman of the Joint Committee on Ways, Means, Finance & Budget, Senator Henry Yallah, said the Committee will not tolerate rescheduling of ministries and agencies.For his part the Deputy Finance Minister for Fiscal Affairs, Adolphus Forkpa, said the total draft resource envelope is US$526.5m; the core revenue is US$523.5m and the contingent revenue is US$2.9m.Mr. Forkpa said the total revenue in Liberian dollars amounts to L$57.3m, at the projected annual average exchange rate of US$1=L$109.Yesterday, according to the schedule of the Revenue Component, the following ministries and agencies appeared: Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA); Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP); the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); the Liberia Petroleum Refining Corporation (LPRC); the Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA); and the Liberia Maritime Authority (LiMA).In today’s schedule, the entities to appear are the National Port Authority (NPA), Forestry Development Authority(FDA), Ministry of Lands, Mines, and Energy (MLM&E), Roberts International Airport (RIA) and Ministry of Transport (MOT).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
