House committee on good government and public accountability chairman Rep. Johnny Ty Pimentel, and committee on housing and urban development chair Rep. Alfredo “Albee” B. Benitez, in a joint hearing deliberated on House Resolution 599 authored by Rep. Ben Evardone which called for an inquiry on the snail-paced implementation of housing relocation and resettlement projects for Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda victims. The committee grilled contractor JC Builders Inc. for the alleged anomalies and officials of the National Housing Authority-Region VIII for failure of its monitoring system, and noted that without the House inquiry and the help of a whistle blower, the use of substandard materials would not be discovered. / FG/PC
