(elbcradio.com/July 14, 2015)-The Legislative Joint Budget Committee has expressed optimism that the 2015/2016 draft budget will be passed before July 26, 2015.

The Co-Chairperson of the committee, Ben Fofana, made the disclosure to Legislative reporters Monday, July 13, 2015.

Representative Fofana, at the same time, said the joint committee is looking for additional revenue source, having realized that the present budget envelop is limited.

President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf recently submitted a draft budget of US$604-million to the Legislature for passage.
Representative Fofana also announced that the committee has concluded public hearings on the draft budget.

The budget committee says with the exception of the Education Ministry, all other required government institutions made representation at the budget hearings.
