Pangelinan pushing for supplemental EIS

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Senator Ben Pangelinan is seeking support from the visiting White House delegation to order a supplemental environmental impact statement. The Guam Legislature will be meeting with White House Council on Environmental Chairwoman Nancy Sutley and a delegation of representatives from DoD, EPA, USDA and DOI on March 23 to discuss impacts of the military buildup.

Pangelinan says the SEIS must include corrections to the erroneous analysis, identification of compatible alternatives and equitable mitigation.  'I was reviewing the DEIS and the comments submitted by the various agencies, not only the Government of Guam but our local people," said Pangelinan.  "And then the US Environmental Protection Agency when it finally gave it a grade, graded the DEIS totally inadequate, unacceptable with regards to the risk that it provides for the people of Guam."

Pangelinan says an SEIS must be done before the final EIS and Record of Decision can be developed.
