Davao solon is new House committee chair on ways and means

DAVAO CITY – Second-term Representative Isidro T. Ungab (3rd district, Davao City) was chosen as new chairman of the Ways and Means Committee of the House of Representatives replacing Representative Hermilando Mandanas (Batangas).

Prior to his election to the top post of the committee, Ungab was its vice chairman. He figured in the debates in the committee and plenary levels of the budgets of the Department of Finance, the Bureau of Customs, Bureau of Internal Revenue, National Economic and Development Authority, Securities and Exchange Commission, Bureau of the Treasury and related agencies.

The ways and means committee is primarily in charge of legislative matters pertaining to the fiscal, monetary and financial management of the National Government.

A native of Calinan, Davao City, Ungab is a graduate of the University of the Philippines in Los Banos, Laguna.

A banker for years, he cut his legislative teeth as three-term member of Davao City’s Council where he was topnotcher councilor representing the third district.

He was poised to go back to the Council in 2007 when he was tapped by then Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to run for congressman. (ASA)
