SEN. Robinhood "Robin" Padilla on Saturday said that local government units (LGUs) will be assured of enough funding for their priority development projects with a budget reform that provides for a Local Development Equalization Fund (LDEF), as contained in a bill he filed in the Senate.

Padilla filed Senate Bill (SB) 447 which provides that the LDEF be used strictly by LGUs for development projects, activities and programs (PAPs) listed in their Comprehensive Local Development Plans (CDPs).
