Guthertz wants info on plans for vessel stationing

Guam - The Committee Chair on the Military Buildup is hoping Navy Secretary Ray Mabus will provide some details about the Army's efforts to station joint highspeed vessels on Guam.  Senator Judi Guthertz says the Army has made no attempt to discuss the proposal with any government official on the island. 

A programmatic environmental impact statement on the possibility of stationing three of the vessels here is being conducted and a public comment period is underway.  Guthertz has requested Secretary Mabus' assistance in clearing up the question of whether the Navy has plans to locate its vessels in Guam as it is not part of the military's current plans with the buildup.

"This is really not the best way to approach these matters on the island. People here are concerned and they want information and I think the Department of Defense including all the services have a responsibility if they want to do something here, then let's have proper notices, let's have a meeting, let's discuss it, let's have input," said Sen. Guthertz.
