Guam - As the Legislative Ethics Committee is scheduled to meet at 9:30 tomorrow to review the complaint lobbed against Senator Matt Rector, member Senator Frank Blas, Jr. has resigned as he has continuously argued a conflict of interest for him to handle the cases on the panel.

Committee chairperson Senator Judi Guthertz has asked the speaker to appoint a replacement by tomorrow's meeting.  Accordingly, late this afternoon, Speaker Judi Won Pat sent a letter to Senator Eddie Calvo, requesting that he appoint a Republican replacement for Blas.
