Guam – Senator Ben Pangelinan introduced a measure that would reprogram and appropriate funds for various programs and projects and other purposes for Fiscal Year 2010. Bill 317 intends to ensure that government of Guam services moves forward along with compensating COLA class retirees.

The measure also lists the following projects as priority for the funds for what will be called The Supplemental Budget Act of 2010.

  • $26,000 – Repair lighting at Piti Baseball field
  • $13,000 – Purchase a photovoltaic lighting system at the Eagle Football field
  • $50,000 – Repair electrical system and light fixtures at Inarajan sport facilities
  • $73,600 – Repair lighting and electrical system of the Talofofo Baseball field
  • $85,000 – Repairs to the Agana Heights Gymnasium and Baseball field
  • $100,000 – Repair and maintenance of the Hal's Angel Football field

The measure additionally appropriates $4,650,000 from the Territorial Education Facilities Fund to the Department of Education for CIP reimbursements, textbooks, and maintenance and warehouse vehicles. $600,000 would be appropriated from the Healthy Futures fund to the medical referral office for contractual services, and $400,000 to the GovGuam retirement fund for prior, current and future expenditures.

$500,000 meanwhile would go to the Guam Memorial Hospital for prior or current year vendor payables due in excess of 180 days. $150,000 would be reprogrammed from the Guam highway fund to the Guam veteran's affairs office.

The measure would finally allow all unexpended funds to go to the Mayor's council of Guam.
