Vigilance in the House of Representatives

Congressman Jerry P. Treñas keenly monitors the most pressing issues affecting our country and the Iloilo City Lone Congressional District in the House of Representatives.

Keeping in mind his duty to be watchful against practices that are contrary to the interests of his constituents, Congressman Treñas filed a total of 14 House Resolutions which were referred to the concerned Committees in Congress.

Congressman Treñas filed a resolution seeking the investigation, in aid of legislation, of the following issues: the questionable fees collected by hospitals from volunteer nurses, the inability of bus companies to abate the endless bus accidents caused by poorly disciplined bus drivers, the implementation of the Climate Change Law, and the inability of law enforcement agencies to stop the wave of carnapping incidents all over the country.

He also filed resolutions strongly urging the concerned government agencies to construct bridges that shall link the islands of Panay, Negros and Guimaras through Public-Private Partnership.

As part of his health consciousness drive, Congressman Treñas filed a resolution declaring June 1 of every year as the national dengue awareness day.

He is also the Chairman of the Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability, which serves as the House counterpart of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee. The Committee tackles several issues involving alleged malpractices committed by officers and employees of the government and its political subdivisions and instrumentalities. He is the Vice-Chairman of both the Committees on Local Government, and Trade and Industry. He likewise serves in the Committees on Appropriation, Ecology, Energy, Ways and Means and Information Communications Technology.
