Guam - Chairwoman Nancy Sutley of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, will be leading a delegation of federal officials from DOD, EPA, USDA and DOI, who are traveling next week following the president's visit to look at the infrastructure related issues with the military buildup.
Chairwoman Sutley has asked to meet with the Guam Legislature to hear the views of the senators, and better understand the impacts the military buildup will have on the island. Speaker Judi Won Pat said, "If there's anyone to meet, it's this person Sutley; she's the top advisor to the President on the military buildup so although we may be speaking in the past with congressional delegations to provide legislations or funding - the driving force is this individual."
Won Pat says she's glad to see that the chairwoman will be joined by representatives from the federal agencies and says she thinks it's a result of the USDA's recent evaluation. The speaker added that she hopes the delegation is able to take a serious look at what is going on island relative to addressing mitigation efforts surrounding the environmental impact that will occur as a result of the buildup.
