Dalawang probisyon sa 2024 nat’l budget ‘di pinayagan ni PBBM

MANILA, Philippines – DALAWANG probisyon sa 2024 General Appropriations Act ang bineto (veto) o hindi pinayagan ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

Isa na rito ay may kinalaman sa revolving fund ng Department of Justice (DOJ) habang ang isa naman ay para sa implementasyon ng Career Executive Service Development Program (NGCESDP) ng national government.

Ang katuwiran ng Pangulo, walang batas na nagbibigay ng awtoridad sa DoJ para magtatag ng nasabing pondo.

“In accordance with my constitutional mandate to ensure that laws are faithfully executed, I am obliged to veto Department of Justice (DOJ)-Office of the Secretary (OSEC), Special Provision No. 1, ‘DOJ Revolving Fund,’ Volume I-A, page 1119, inasmuch as there is no law which authorizes the DOJ to establish a revolving fund for the purpose indicated therein,” ang sinabi ni Pangulong Marcos sa kanyang December 20-letter kay House Speaker Martin Romualdez at ibang miyembro ng Mababang Kapulungan ng Kongreso.

“It may be emphasized that the service fees sought to be charged and collected are to be imposed upon complaints and affidavits filed with the National Prosecution Service, and petitions for review filed before the DOJ, when, in fact, such pleadings are filed with the said agencies by virtue of their jurisdiction vested by law,” ang nakasaad pa rin sa liham ng Pangulo kay Romualdez.

Tinuran pa ng Pangulo na “the charges are clearly not from business-type activities within the contemplation of the General Provision on Revolving Funds in the GAA, which permits the constitution of a revolving fund from receipts derived from business-type activities of agencies to be utilized for the operational expenses of such business-type activities.”

Tinukoy ang naging pahayag ng Korte Suprema, winika ng Pangulo na ang ‘inappropriate provisions’ ay ang mga unconstitutional provisions and provisions na naglalayong amiyendahan ang bang batas “because clearly these kind[s] of laws have no place in an appropriations bill.”

“These are matters of general legislation more appropriately dealt with in separate enactments,” aniya pa rin.

Sa kabilang dako, ang pag-veto naman sa implementasyon ng NGCESDP ay dahil wala itong kaugnayan sa anumang probisyon ng national budget.

Bineto ng Pangulo ang Seksyon 38 sa ilalim ng General Provisions, sa “Implementation of National Government’s Career Executive Service Development Program (NGCESDP)” (Volume I-B, page 762).

Sinabi ng Pangulo na ang Presidential Decree (PD) No. 336 na may petsang Nobyembre 14, 1973, “amending Part I, Article IV, Sections 2 and 5 [G], of the Integrated Reorganization Plan approved under Presidential Decree No. 1, dated September 24, 1972), which is considered a substantive law, created the Career Executive Service Board (CESB).”

“PD No. 336 further delineated the functions of the CESB as the governing body of the Career Executive Service (CES) and the Development Academy of the Philippines is tasked to prepare a CES program appropriate and necessary for the organization and operation of the CES, and in consultation with the CESB, initiate and continue to implement the aforesaid program,” ayon pa rin sa Punong Ehekutibo sabay sabing, “Moreover, Section 8 (2), Chapter 2, Subtitle A, Title I, Book V of Executive Order (EO) No. 292, s. 1987 (Administrative Code of 1987), also considered a substantive law, expressly prescribed that entrance to the third level career service position shall be prescribed by the CESB.”

Samantala, nilagdaan ng Pangulo ang Republic Act (RA) No. 11975, o General Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year (FY) 2024, araw ng Miyerkules.

“The P5.768-trillion national budget, equivalent to 21.1 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), was designed to sustain the country’s high-growth trajectory and is the key to unlocking the Administration’s goals for the country’s economic transformation,” ayon sa Malakanyang. Kris Jose
