Governor signs 2 bills, vetoes 1

Guam - Governor Felix Camacho signed two bills into law and vetoed one yesterday.  One of the measures passed - Bill 413, now Public Law 30-182 - deals with the financing and construction for the expansion of Okkodo High School.  The legislation allows the Government of Guam to enter into a leaseback agreement with a chosen contractor who, through the use of qualified school construction bonds, will be responsible for the long-term expansion and improvement of facilities for Okkodo High. Governor Camacho says this will alleviate congestion in the classrooms.

He also signed Bill 424, now Public Law 30-183. The new law restructures the Guam Education Board from a policy to a governing board. It further allows the governor to appoint three board members with the remaining six to be elected by the voters. It further addresses the removal of board members by consensus of other board members rather than by referendum.

Camacho vetoed Bill 418, which is relative to the composition of members to the Territorial Parole Board. The governor does not agree with its current form and feels that Board members will not be willing to risk their lives and continue as members if they are subjected to confrontation.
