Congressional Initiatives After the EDSA Revolution
The long years of martial rule under Marcos obliterated the legislators’
“franchise” on pork barrel in the pejorative American tradition since one man controlled
the legislature. Moreover, the revulsion against the profligacy and corruption during the
martial law regime deterred the revival of the offensive pork barrel system. Hence, the
congressional allocations instituted in the 8
th Congress after the EDSA revolution, which
were nonetheless dubbed, albeit inaccurately, as “pork barrel”, had definitive
parameters, equal apportionments, built-in accountability and clear transparency. Unlike
the American pork barrel, the allocation was not a “check without balances, school
without teachers, highways without traffic cops, law without prisons.”
