Guam - Senator Judi Guthertz wrote a letter to Joint Guam Program Office Executive Director David Bice asking for his staff to brief the Guam Legislature on the final environmental impact statement for the relocation of U.S. Marines from Okinawa to Guam, with emphasis on the new concept of "adaptive execution" or "stretch out" of the buildup.
Guthertz said this was proposed by her back in January. The letter was sent shortly after JGPO briefed the Governor's Office and the chairs of the Civilian Military Task Force just recently.
