Tiyan landowners stand behind Bill 278

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Tiyan landowners are gearing up to show support for a measure that would allow for land exchange for landowners that can't get their property back from the Guam International Airport. Task force chairperson Benny Crawford says they will be holding signs up throughout this week's session supporting Bill 278, which urges lawmakers not to make any major changes to the legislation.

"We had kind of a dry run today and it turned out really well, so our landowners will be down there in force tomorrow to monitor and to observe the bills that are being discussed for voting," he said.

Crawford adds that the group represents 72 estates, and that the amendments proposed will require the Ancestral Lands Commission to complete transactions to issue deeds for the property within 180 days.
