Guam - The Chamorro Land Trust Commission's board of directors met today, with members fielding questions from the business community about when the rules and regulations governing commercial leases will be enacted.  The policy is now with the Guam Legislature for review and will be the topic of a public hearing.

CLTC Acting Administrator Jesse Garcia says once passed by the Legislature the measure would then be sent back to the governor for his approval. Senator Ben Pangelinan will over see the process at the Legislature and today a member of his staff spoke out during the meeting.

Policy and Research Analyst Napu Castro questions the board on why employee of CLTC are not terminated when they don't follow proper procedure, saying, "Showing a person land that's not even in the inventory a land agent should be able to identify what is in their inventory at the very least what is federal property."

In fact, during that meeting residents addressed the board stating they reside on land they believed belonged to the CLTC, but have since found out it actually belongs to the federal government. Board chairman Oscar Calvo says CLTC employees cannot be simply terminated on the spot due to civil service violations, but did promise to meet with senators on the issue.
