Guam - It's back to the drawing board for the Chamorro Land Trust Commission's rules and regulations.  CLTC oversight chair Senator Ben Pangelinan intends to draft a new version (as Bill 422) that was previously introduced and signed-off on by Governor Felix Camacho was shot down in a vote by the Guam Legislature. 

The lawmaker says he had problems with a provision that would have given commercial leases to the general public.  Said the senator, "The Chamorro Land Trust is, of course, number one, a program for the residential leases or licenses to Chamorros. That is the number one objective. That is to ensure we keep in perpetuity that it is available for residential and agricultural purposes first and foremost to the Chamorro Land Trust beneficiaries."

Pangelinan says he plans to have a draft version of the rules and regs ready with in a month.
