President signs into law County Allocation of Revenue Amendment Bill

President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House Nairobi, signed into law the County Allocation of Revenue Amendment Bill. 

The signing of the Bill now paves way for the National Treasury to disburse funds to County Governments. 

The new Act of Parliament sets out accurately the conditional allocations to county governments from loans and grants thereby aligning the County Allocation of Revenue Act, 2017 to the provisions of the Division of Revenue Act, 2017.
