“Most, if not all, of my recommendations have not been implemented, including the timelines for the release of funds which was approved as contained in the Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Recovery Plan (CRRP),” Lacson said.
Former president Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III appointed Lacson as the head of the Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery (OPARR) in 2013.
Aquino approved the 8,000 pages CRRP for implementation in 172 cities and municipalities in six regions of the country in October 2014.
“We listed down PPAs, each and every item with corresponding amounts. I-implement na lang,” Lacson said.

“Pati cross-cutting policy issues nga, we addressed sa plan, including multi-hazard mapping, issues involved in lack of lands, one-stop shop to address red tape, etc. That’s why it is a comprehensive plan,” the senator added.
