Posted: Updated:

Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo today presented her testimony on H.R. 3940, which would authorize the Secretary of the Interior to extend technical assistance grants and other assistance to facilitate a political status public education on Guam, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The measure was introduced by Bordallo last November, and was then passed by the House in December.

The bill must now be passed out of the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources before put up to a vote in the full U.S. Senate. During today's oversight hearing on that committee, Bordallo stated, "Each territory is on its own time line and path for political status resolution, and that our people must be afforded the ability to exercise their right to self-determination and express their desire for a permanent status. H.R. 3940 would authorize federal funding to conduct political status education programs to inform people in the territories of their political options."
