Guam - Acting Governor Mike Cruz fired-off a letter to Assistant Secretary of the Navy Jackalyne Pfannenstiel today, stating that he "remains greatly concerned over the possibility that the Department of Defense will exceed its existing footprint in preparation for the relocation of U.S. Marines from Okinawa to Guam".  Cruz says since the DoD currently controls more than a third of the island's total landmass, he strongly urges the federal government to meet its need within the inventory it already possesses.

Cruz added that as mentioned in Resolution 275, he along with Governor Felix Camacho and the Guam Legislature are in opposition to the DoD's use of the Pagat site, the condemnation of Guam lands, and the dredging of Apra Harbor.
