Guam - At least one senator feels that more needs to be done when it comes to the Programmatic Agreement for the military buildup. Senator Judi Guthertz (D) expressed her concerns to Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy on Environment Don Schregardus, saying only one agreement would be disastrous.

Guthertz says the "one size fits all" agreement is not good enough for the anticipated population growth for the island, telling KUAM News, "Of course, it would be more convenient for our military friends to have one universal permit that they can use anywhere in order to meet the requirements of the federal law that applies, but it's not in our interest to have one permit for all projects."

Guthertz believes the federal government and military will be viewed as colonists if they push too hard for their approach to the PA.
