Guam - Governor Felix Camacho may have sent the proposed legislation for the Hay Study to the Guam Legislature, however, Speaker Judi Won Pat says there are other priorities that need the funding and is not sure where the Government of Guam will even get the money to pay for the study's implementation.

"There will have to be a financial impact statement that we need to receive from BBMR, we know already that it's going to be a $5.5 million," she noted.  "The big question here right now is where are we going to find the $5.5 million?"

The legislation would appropriate that amount for implementation of the outcomes of the Comprehensive Government-Wide Position, Classification, Compensation and Benefits Study Plan.
