SEN. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Works, conducted on Wednesday an ocular inspection of vital infrastructures in the province of Pangasinan that sustained damage as a result of typhoon Lando.
Marcos flew to Urdaneta City to speak at the Barangay Health Workers congress. He took the opportunity to see the extent of devastation caused by the typhoon and was accompanied by Pangasinan Vice Governor Ferdinand Calimlim, officials of the Department of Public Works and Highways, among others.
“We will begin our deliberation on the 2016 budget when we resume our session next week and this would help me pinpoint priorities for the rehabilitation and repair of vital infrastructures,” said Marcos, who inspected the damaged dike in San Nicolas town.
The senator also met with Urdaneta Mayor Gregorio Perez and other officials to discuss the effect of the typhoon and other concerns of the local government.
Marcos is also the chairman of the Senate Committee on Local Government.
