Limtiaco clears Senate Judiciary Committee

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Guam Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco is one step closer to becoming the next U.S. Attorney for Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. Her nomination cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee today. On February 24, President Barack Obama submitted his nomination of Limtiaco to serve as the next U.S. Attorney for Guam and the NMI.

Her nomination was supported by Guam Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, who said, "The favorable reporting of Attorney General Limtiaco's nomination allows the full Senate to vote on her nomination.  Attorney General Limtiaco has the right background to serve as U.S. Attorney for Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.  I thank Chairman [Patrick] Leahy for moving Attorney General Limtiaco's nomination forward and I hope that the Senate confirms her nomination very soon."
