Japan Eyes Extra Budget after Typhoon Hagibis

   Tokyo, Oct. 15 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Tuesday the government is considering compiling a supplementary budget to finance the restoration and reconstruction of areas hit by powerful Typhoon Hagibis.
   "We will take fiscal steps including assembling a supplementary budget if necessary," Abe said at a meeting of the government's emergency disaster response headquarters.
   The government plans to tap into reserve funds under its fiscal 2019 budget for the time being, he said.
   Speaking at a press conference, Finance Minister Taro Aso said, "We need to come up with measures such as a supplementary budget if more support is needed."
   At the disaster response headquarters meeting, participants agreed to send support staff to five prefectures and nine municipalities to help operating evacuation shelters.
