The proposed AFP Modernization Fund for 2019 is still at PHP 25 billion. Hopefully, this will be increased when the House and Senate deliberates on this..

DND to receive 34 percent increased budget for 2019

https://www.dbm.gov.ph/index.php/secretary-s-corner/press-releases/list-of-press-releases/1250-dnd-to-receive-34-percent-increased-budget-for-2019   

Strengthening the Philippines’ defense posture is still on top of the reform priorities of the Duterte Administration.

For 2019, the budget of the Department of National Defense (DND) has gone up to PhP183.4 billion. This translates to a 34.4 percent increase over its 2018 cash-based equivalent budget of PhP136.5 billion.

“The DND has the fourth biggest budget allocation for 2019 among the national agencies.” Department of Budget and Management Secretary Benjamin E. Diokno said. “This is in line with the government’s 0+10-Point Socioeconomic Agenda to make the country’s safety and security an essential pillar in our sustained economic growth.”

For 2019, the Philippine Army, Philippine Air Force, and the Philippine Navy have been allocated Php89.0 billion, PhP24.6 billion, and PhP27.8 billion, respectively. The budget will go to their programs on defense operations to attain the desired level of mission capability of their respective unit—all in an effort to reinforce the country’s border security and patrol measures to protect the Philippines’ borders from illegal incursions, resource exploitation, maritime disputes, smuggling of firearms and contrabands, human trafficking, and other transnational crimes.

Included in the DND’s 2019 proposed budget is the AFP Modernization Program, which amounts to PhP25 billion. This will be used to continue enhancing the capabilities of all branches of the AFP, as stipulated under Republic Act No. 10349 s. 2012, otherwise known as the “AFP Modernization Act.”

This includes a grant of salary increase to military personnel who serve and protect the citizenry. (BITS)

Palace: Duterte won’t ask for Congress special session to finish 2019 budget
By: Darryl John Esguerra - Reporter / @DJEsguerraINQ INQUIRER.net /

MANILA, Philippines —President Rodrigo Duterte will not call for a special session for Congress to finish deliberations on the proposed P3.7-trillion national budget for 2019, Malacañang said Friday.

“The President will not be calling for a special session on the request of the Senate,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a Palace briefing.

< Edited >

Senators have earlier blamed the House of Representatives for the delay in passing the proposed 2019 national budget due to the alleged unfinished “pork barrel.” /kga

2019 nat'l budget ready by Q1: Diokno
By Kris Crismundo  February 13, 2019, 3:48 pm

MANILA -- The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has assured that the 2019 national budget will be enacted before the end of the first quarter.

In his weekly press event "Breakfast with Ben", Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno said Congress has promised to submit the 2019 General Appropriations Bill to President Rodrigo Duterte by March 1.

The President has 30 days to act on it from the receipt... Thirty days, I can assure you," he said.

He mentioned that as soon as the DBM receives the copy of the bill, the agency will go through the document line by line to prepare for the Statement of Difference (SOD).

It will also make recommendations to the Chief Executive whenever amendments will be needed.

"The President will have the option to veto because the President, our President, has line-item veto power for the budget, tax, and tariff bill. What does that mean? We can cross out items to the budget and sign the bill as approved," Diokno said.

The DBM chief added he sees no need to extend the reenacted budget as the new budget will be implemented before March ends.

"We actually authorized agencies up to the first quarter," he added.

The bicameral conference committee approved the PHP3.757-trillion spending bill last Friday before Congress went on recess for the 2019 midterm elections campaign. (PNA)
