GovGuam admits: no funds for 3rd increment

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Because lawmakers never appropriated money for this fiscal year, public safety and law enforcement personnel won't be getting the third 10 percent increment that's spelled out in Guam law.  Despite a judge ordering the government to follow the law and pay out the increment, the Attorney General's Office responded to a lawsuit that was filed by dozens of personnel who are fighting for the government to pay out what they're owed.

Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Orcutt says there is no appropriation and the proposed class should not be certified because it is vague and has failed to include other agencies. Attorney Dan Somerfleck, who represents the class has until December 6 to file a brief to the AG's response.

A show cause hearing on the matter is scheduled for December 16 at 9:30am before Judge Michael Bordallo.
