ALVAREZ: Support federalism or get zero budget

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has threatened the provinces of politicians who would not support administration efforts to shift to a federal form of government with a “zero budget.”

Alvarez said that he would respect the decision of lawmakers who would oppose moves to amend the 1987 Constitution to pave the way for a federal form of government but stressed that these solons should not also resent if their provinces would get no funding due to their choice.
