Bill funding JFK's graduation passes

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Lawmakers spent the day in session discussing a number of bills, including Bill 230, which was moved to the voting file.  The measure seeks to appropriate money from the Territorial Education Facilities Fund for the Department of Education.  Senator Eddie Calvo's amendment to add funding for classroom supplies and preparing Ramsey Field for JFK High School's upcoming graduation passed.

However, efforts to appropriate money for other things such as I 'Famaguonta failed. 

Bill 275, introduced by Senator Frank Aguon, Jr., which would create a special fund for Guam's community health centers, was also moved to the Voting File.  Lawmakers spent the afternoon discussing several measures for individuals with speech and hearing disabilities; as well as Bill 293, which would require the Guam Election Commission to do more extensive background searches on applicants vying for an elected position. 

Session continues tomorrow.
