The government approved Sunday the emergency plan to speed up construction of housing units, its goal being to help stem rising housing costs, Israel Radio reported.

According the plan, housing committees will be established to aid in bypassing the bureaucratic barriers that prevent quickly receiving construction permits.

Until legislative approval passes, additional regional committees will be set up to advance the government plan.
