English term or phrase: Legally mandated spending has increased rapidly
Se está hablando de la situación fiscal en Brasil. No sé si sería correcto poner "gasto público a realizarse por mandato legal", pero tal vez ustedes tengan alguna sugerencia mejor. Este es el contexto:

**Legally mandated spending has increased rapidly, and without significant reform this type of spending is projected to become explosive***. An important part of this mandatory spending is tied to the 1988 Constitution. Less than 20 percent of the budget is discretionary. Moreover, other policy decisions, such as minimum wage increases, have aggravated increased current spending. Rising minimum wages increase spending under mandatory programs, especially social security.


Mil gracias de antemano por sus sugerencias.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Te agradecería si pudieras explicarme cómo llegaste a "aprobado" a partir de "mandated". ¿Encontraste la equivalencia en algún diccionario? Y si es así, ¿me podrías indicar dónde?

Asker: Dudé en poner "aprobado", pues pienso que todos los gastos del estado tienen que ser aprobados, tal como se aprueba el presupuesto. La Constitución en este caso, obliga a realizar ciertos gastos, como por ejemplo, en bienestar social. Es decir, tienen que hacerse por mandato legal. Te agradezco mucho tu ayuda y te mando un gran abrazo.
