Guam - Senator Frank Aguon, Jr.'s committee is still finalizing the committee report for Bill 185, the highly-controversial same-sex civil union legislation. Aguon says he will wait on the bill's author, Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz, to return to Guam and provide him an opportunity to work on any additional amendments to the measure.
"My committee director has been out on medical leave, but the committee report is being finalized as we speak. I am awaiting the return of the vice-speaker so that, in fact, we can finalize some of the proposed amendments and then proceed form there in reporting out of the committee. Then it's up to the legislative body if it would like to consider it," said Aguon.
It's unclear whether the measure will be on the agenda for next week's legislative session.
