ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the Department of Budget and Management's (DBM) Fiscal Planning Bureau December 2010 study revealed that there are 184 unfunded/partially funded laws with a funding deficiency of P187.1 billion.

 

According to the study, "the deficiency only reflects laws with quantifiable requirements." Majority of the laws that are allegedly unfunded are "local laws concerning the separation of jurisdictions of hospitals and schools."

 

Among the few national laws are the National Dairy Development Act of 1995 with a deficiency  of P1.389 billion; the Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998 (P1.5 billion), the extension of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (P112 billion), the Philippine Coast Guard Law, the  Baselines Law, Climate Change Act, Tubbataha Reefs National Park, and the UP Charter of 2008.
