Guam - Legislative Secretary Tina Muna Barnes expressed disappointment in the Record of Decision signed in Washington. Barnes said she remained cautiously hopeful concerns raised throughout the environmental impact statement process would be addressed by the federal government, but says the ROD confirms "the concerns and issues raised by the people of Guam fell on deaf ears."

The Democrat senator wrote, "It is very disturbing that the federal government continues to disregard the concerns raised by the people of Guam. It is upsetting to come to the realization that after all the town hall meetings, public hearings, and over 10,000 comments submitted we were ignored by the federal government."

While she says she recognizes that the military buildup will forever change not only the footprint but the blueprint of the island, Barnes adds "it is important to remember to stay focused and deserve and to not settle for anything less."
