Governor's Office reviewing 20 bills

Posted: Updated:

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The Camacho Administration is currently reviewing 20 bills that were recently passed by lawmakers.  Among those measures is Bill 389, the Ramon Oberiano Act, which raises the legal drinking age on Guam from 18 to 21; and Bill 278, which provides compensation or a land exchange for Tiyan landowners whose property was taken for the airport expansion with land at the old Federal Aviation Administration at Marbo Sea Command.

Bill 271 is also up for consideration - that would get rid of the Guam Police Department's legal counsel and repeal a provision of local law that allows a former chief of police to return to his previous classified position prior to appointment.

The governor has ten days to veto or sign the measures into law.
