Senators vote down changes to CLTC rules

Guam - The Guam Legislature voted down a bill to change the rules and regulations at the Chamorro Land Trust Commission. The agency had worked for over a year to draft the policy. Commission chairman Oscar Calvo is not holding back on his reaction to the vote, saying, "My reaction to that was I was outraged, mad and pissed off because of all that work we put in there. 

"It seems like it was just flushed down the toilet, and if I would have know all of those thing were not going to be addressed the senator could have told me that night the bill was fraud or whatever it needs to go back for more cleaning but never once did he did."

A public hearing on the rules was held last Thursday, but Calvo says some senators he spoke with say they felt they did not have enough time to review the bill. If the senators had not voted against the measure it would have become law by default on September 15.

Governor Felix Camacho signed-off on the rules and regs this past June.
