MK Dov Henin (Hadash) slammed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu over the passage of the Housing Committees Bill on Wednesday, saying: "Instead of doing what is necessary - first of all to build public housing and affordable housing on state lands - Netanyahu continues to go in the opposite direction."

The law, he said, "Destroys planning mechanisms and environmental protections." Because the bill does not "actually oblige contractors to build once plans are approved, " Henin added, "There is no acceleration of construction. Additionally, there is nothing that guarantees building transportation infrastructure or industry, public buildings and education."
