Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Department of Integrated Services for Individuals with Disabilities is skeptical of the plan of action for the government's amended permanent injunction. In a brief to the court, the Attorney General's Office outlined concerns from the agency. DISID believes many of the services outlined to be administered at the center are already being provided. 

Additionally, the agency is concerned that the plan may jeopardize grant money from the Rehabilitation Services Administration because the money cannot easily be transferred to the Guam Department of Mental Health.  DISID suggested requesting the World Health Organization assign physicians to Guam to treat the target population. 

Mental Health meanwhile was generally in support of the plan.
