Bordallo asks for Final EIS extension

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam congressional delegate Madeleine Bordallo is requesting for an extension to the 30-day waiting period for the Final Environmental Impact Statement on the military buildup. Although the deadline to submit a comment in this Saturday, today is the final day you can submit comments at your village mayor's office.

Those comments will be transmitted to the Department of the Navy's Joint Guam Program Office in Washington, DC as part of the governor's official response regarding the Final EIS.

Residents are encouraged to submit comments focusing on specific areas and issues contained in the document.  They may also choose to drop-off comments to their village mayor using their preferred format, or may consider sending their comments directly to the Governor's Office via e-mail at feis@guam.gov.

Congresswoman Bordallo wrote Assistant Secretary of the Navy Jackalynn Pfannensteil last week, requesting for the extension to feedback on the military buildup. Bordallo said more time is needed for review and that, "It is important that all of our concerns highlighted in the Final Environmental Impact Statement, especially those of location for the proposed firing range and the transit carrier berthing location, are appropriately addressed in the record of decision. 

"An extension to the waiting period would allow for this necessary time to evaluate alternative plans and better identify ways to mitigate any potential impacts to our community."
