Parliament's Public Administration and Appropriations Committee will on Wednesday deliberate on the First Supplementary Estimates of Expenditure tabled on Tuesday.
It shows an intention to spend $90 billion more than was originally expected. This increases the budget for the 2017/18 fiscal year from $715.6 billion to $805 billion.
Most of the increased spending, $69 billion, will go towards paying down the debt. Two billion dollars was allocated for an islandwide road repair programme.
It also includes $585 million allocated to purchase vehicles for the security forces and $30 million to be spent on getting the National Identification System ready for implementation.
The Estimates show an increase in the recurrent (housekeeping) expenses from $493.7 billion to $515.4 billion while capital (development) spending moved from $221.8 billion to $290 billion.
