Guam - A roundtable discussion was held this afternoon for Guam Office of Homeland Security and the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency to allow the opportunity to tell the Guam Legislature what they need in order to be prepared for the military buildup. Customs Director Colonel Dennis Santo Tomas says they are hoping to establish a reserves program as well as implement a modernized fee system that has not been updated for the past 15 years.

He said, "By the establishment of a local fines, fees and forfeitures then we assess local fines and those revenues can go into the General Fund, so those are some of the things along with automation initiative with the assistance of the Governor's Office."

Santo Tomas says it's important that they receive more manpower to help with the increase load from the buildup.
