Guam - Senator Tony Ada went immediately to work today, introducing three pieces of legislation. Bill 352 is relative to prohibiting discrimination for Government of Guam programs solely on the basis of conviction of a statue offense. Ada says the issue is one of many he is hoping to address in his nine-month term in office.

The newest member of the 30th Guam Legislature said, "There's certain GovGuam agencies or contract the providers that restricts any youth from participating in programs if they have a youth status offense against them. We want to eliminate that to ensure that they're given a second chance."

Ada also introduced Bill 352, which repeals laws that limit voter choices for public office to non-Government of Guam employees and Bill 354 that provides a regular budget for the maintenance and upkeep of the Veterans Cemetery.
