Guam - A handful of Guam senators met with a four-member staff delegation from Washington, DC representing the Subcommittee on Insular Affairs, Oceans and Wildlife, which is chaired by Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo.  

Lawmakers shared their concerns over the way that the Draft Environmental Impact Statement public hearings have been conducted up to this point, noting Guam residents' frustration with the protocol like having a three-minute time constraint to abide by when voicing their comments, and made the case for ensuring the comments being made by the people have a tangible affect on the final DEIS.

Senator Frank Blas, Jr. said, "First, we move on those unresolved issues. We seem to be succumbing to everyone outside the people of Guam and not to Guam. You are going to impose this on us again."

The staff delegation representatives say they are on a fact finding mission and plan to attend the DEIS public hearing this evening at the Yigo Gym.
