Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Port Authority of Guam's board of directors is scheduled to meet on the 29th to discuss several issues including efforts to obtain $50 million in federal funding for the agency's modernization efforts.  Officials are hopeful Congress will follow through on President Barack Obama's inclusion of $50 million in his budget for port upgrades.

The USDA has already committed $54 million dollars that it is willing to provide the agency as a match once the other $50 million is identified. 

The Port board is also expected to discuss efforts to hire a chief negotiator for ongoing discussions between the Guam Federation of Teachers and PAG employees. Former Port GM and negotiator Ken Tagawa's contract recently expired, and Vivian Leon has taken over until the position is filled.
