Guam - Proponents of the highly controversial Bill 185 are hosting a "Thank You Guam" wave next week. The legislation proposes to allow same-sex civil unions locally, a measure which is opposed by the Catholic Church on Guam. The wave is scheduled for February 12 from 4:30-6pm at the Chief Quipuha Loop in Hagatna.

Meanwhile, according to the committee report on Bill 185, three senators voted to recommend to pass the legislation while four recommend to report it out of the committee.  The three in favor of passage include senators Frank Aguon, Jr., Rory Respicio and Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz.

The four who recommend it be reported out of committee are senators Adolpho Palacios, Judi Guthertz, Telo Taitague and Ray Tenorio.
