In a letter dated December 20 addressed to House Speaker Martin Romualdez and other House members, President Marcos stated, “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.”

He emphasized that the service fees sought to be charged and collected are imposed upon complaints and affidavits filed with the National Prosecution Service and petitions for review filed before the DOJ.


These charges are not from business-type activities, as permitted by the General Provision on Revolving Funds in the GAA.

President Marcos cited a Supreme Court pronouncement, stating that inappropriate provisions inappropriately amend other laws and have no place in an appropriations bill. These matters should be addressed in separate enactments as they involve general legislation.


Additionally, President Marcos vetoed Section 38 under the General Provisions related to the “Implementation of National Government’s Career Executive Service Development Program (NGCESDP).”


Business: Business men in suite and tie in a work meeting in the office located in the financial district.

He argued that this section does not relate to any particular appropriation in the budget and highlighted existing laws, such as Presidential Decree No. 336 and Executive Order No. 292, that govern the Career Executive Service.


The President signed Republic Act No. 11975, the General Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2024, into law on Wednesday.
