Guam - It seems the island's law enforcement may not be getting their third 10 percent increment as required by law. The governor's legal counsel has forwarded its review of the law enforcement ten percent increments to the Guam Attorney General's Office. Governor's Legal Counsel Shannon Taitano-Lujan says the AG should be filing a response to the Superior Court soon.
She says it will detail why the Government of Guam does not have the funds to pay the raises as well as the negative impacts that would happen if they did. Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo ordered the payments be made or that the island's public sector explain why they won't.
Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo ordered the government to comply with the law or explain why they won't at a show cause hearing scheduled for December 16.
