This pertains to the appointment and assumption to duty of Chairman Alfredo L. Benipayo and Commissioners Resurreccion Z. Borra and Florentino A. Tuason, Jr. It appearing that Chairman Benipayo and Commissioner Tuason, Jr. have not yet been given their regional assignments, there is a need to revisit the resolution approving the temporary regional assignments of Commissioners-in-Charge (CIC) issued immediately after the retirement of former Chairman Harriet O.
