The House Committee on Government Enterprises and Privatization chaired by Parañaque Rep. Eric Olivarez terminated on Thursday the hearing based on the privilege speech delivered on the floor on February 15, 2021 by Nueva Ecija Rep. Estrellita Suansing on the alleged plans to privatize the Talavera Water District. The privatization would have potential negative effects on the residents, according to Suansing. The panel approved the motion for a resolution on the suspension of all joint venture contracts between the local water districts and the private proponents. As for the possible violations committed by the appointing authority of the Talavera Water District for the board members, the panel approved the motion to refer these to the proper committee for inquiry, in aid of legislation.
