Guam - It's the first day of the new fiscal year and already there are concerns that the Department of Education will run out of money. Guam Education Policy Board Chair Ron Ayuyu is unsure whether DOE's $183 million budget is enough to cover the additional costs for the health insurance plan.

The board will hold a special meeting on October 8 to discuss the issue, with Ayuyu saying, "We want to see what's the impact also and the total cost within our budget, we want to make sure that everything runs smooth for the doe in t he finance section area."

Ayuyu is confident the agency will be seeking additional funding from the Guam Legislature.
