Guam - The Port Authority is still working with federal agencies to identify money to fund the agency's modernization efforts.  Port board chair Monte Mesa says while they wait to see if any federal money will be made available for their efforts, the port is working on a contingency plan that will be submitted to lawmakers in June.

"The Plan B would entail of course be what would be the priority improvements the port will need to be handle our normal growth, but also anticipation of the current military activity that's going on with the Navy and Air Force," said Mesa.

The chairman also said that strategy will also include details of how the Port Authority will manage the anticipated influx of cargo associated not only with the buildup, but also with contractors and other military projects around the island. 

This issue is one of many that are expected to be discussed at the agency's board meeting this evening.
