Senator Ralph Recto needs gaming controller Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) to set aside P3 billion of its income to modernize the operations of state climate agency PAGASA.

Recto said it would cost at any rate P3.9 billion to modernize PAGASA, and P45 million every year to subsidize the pay conformities and also P70 million for preparing and grants.

Recto said the P3 billion value of stores will help PAGASA secure present day hardware, for example, Doppler radars, to set-up a world-class climate server farm.
