Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Ancestral Land Commissions met today and land agent Joe Leon Guerrero says the agency plans to move forward with following Public Law 30-158, which requires lands owned by the FAA and at Andy South be doled out to original Tiyan landowners.

Leon Guerrero says the Commission will give property owners two weeks to gather documents including abstracts of titles and land survey certifications. He says the Commission estimates they will begin hearings to deed out the parcels in early September. The Commission has 180 days to meet the deadline outlined in the law signed which was signed by Lieutenant Governor Mike Cruz on July 13.

A lawsuit was filed against the GALC to prevent the land swap from taking place; the issue is still moving through the District Court.
