Bordallo comments on Pagat lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo today issued the following statement on the announcement of a lawsuit filed by the Guam Preservation Trust, We Are Guahan, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation against the Department of Defense:

"While I have not seen the specific details on the lawsuit, I believe that the suit will, once and for all, provide answers as to whether all feasible alternatives were explored when the Department of Defense decided its preferred alternative location for the firing range near the Pagat cultural and historical site. 

"I have continually urged the Department of Defense to look at their currently existing lands and Tinian to accommodate these individual skill training requirements.  I remain unconvinced that a deal could be reached to lease Government of Guam land near the Pagat cultural and historical site without major changes to the current plans."
