Guthertz looks forward to buildup hearing

Guam - Senator Judi Guthertz says she expects to have a big turnout at her public hearing on Tuesday on the topic of land condemnation by the military for the buildup.  Guthertz says she is very concerned that the military will condemn the 2,200 acres of additional land it has expressed interest in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement and that the community must speak-up now.

"People don't want their land taken away, they can negotiate with private landowners or negotiate with GovGuam, but no land takings or condemnation," said the senator.

Guthertz says her committee will produce a report on the DEIS once her staff has finished its review. As chair of the Legislative Committee on the Military Buildup, Senator Guthertz introduced a resolution that will be heard on Tuesday, which she says opposes any land condemnation for the buildup whatsoever.
