Guam - It was a packed house at the Guam Legislature Thursday night as Tiyan landowners came out to express their support for Bill 278, which proposes to compensate landowners for property taken by the airport with land at the old Marbo Sea Command. 

Tiyan Landowners Task Force Chair Benny Crawford says the landowners are planning to go ahead with an amendment to the bill that would set a timeline for the Ancestral Lands Commission to process the requests.

Crawford said members had "A lot of support; there was no one there that testified against our request for these two parcels of land. I wanted to say however that we're asking that they would move in a fast pace. 180 days. That there would be a second line to that."
