House Speaker and Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on Tuesday is seeking to activate an oversight committee that will monitor the implementation of a law that facilitates urban poor housing in the country.
The Speaker and former President said that there is indeed a need to activate the oversight panel which was mandated under Republic Act No. 9207 or the National Government Center Housing and Land Utilization Act of 2003.
Arroyo said that while most of the families in the village had already been awarded their own land titles some problems still exist — particularly reports of land-grabbing and failure in the re-blocking of some properties.
The Speaker also said that the new panel will conduct its first hearing on Monday, 21 January to tackle the remaining problems of Brgy. Holy Spirit residents.
