Guam - With the passage of the Fiscal Year 2010-2011 budget, law enforcement and public safety personnel won't be getting a third 10% salary increment that's mandated by public law.  Public Law 29-105 called for four 10% salary increases for public safety and law enforcement personnel, with the third increment to take effect October 1. 

When the Executive Branch adopted the recommendations of the Hay Study, the decision was made not to include the adjustment.  The Department of Administration has also asked that the public law be repealed, canceling the remaining 20% owed to public safety personnel.

Public Safety Committee Chair Senator Adolpho Palacios maintains the delay in the third increment is only temporary.
