Guam - Senator Judi Guthertz spoke before the Rotary Club today.  While she encouraged the group to review the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, she also mentioned the military wanting to condemn land for the buildup, something she opposes. 

Guthertz expressed her concerns to Joint Guam Program Office Executive Director David Bice, even proposing alternatives that would prevent the military from using this method for acquiring land.  "What about the former FAA housing area? In my opinion, this is nearly catering to the military's desire to be tidy. Feeling in a separation gap between the main area of NCTS and South Finegayan. There is no national security need for that land," the senator said.

Senator Guthertz last week introduced a resolution that would oppose the feds using condemnation as a method of acquiring public land for the buildup.
