Posted: Updated:

Guam - The 30th Guam Legislature will be accepting public testimony on a measure that would establish the Guam World War II Loyalty Recognition Commission.  Bill 274 seeks to bring island leaders and WWII survivors in the community together as they aggressively pursue the endorsement and timely passage of the Guam war reparations legislation. 

Part of that includes acknowledgement of the inhumane treatment received by the people of Guam during the war.  The hearing gets underway tomorrow at 9am in the Legislature's Public Hearing Room in Hagatna.

Meanwhile, the Congressional Armed Services Committee is scheduled to discuss the Fiscal Year 2011 National Defense Authorization Act in Washington on Thursday, Guam time.  Efforts are underway to ensure the inclusion of war reparations in that budget act.
