Posted: Updated:

Guam - Chairman of the Legislative Committee on Appropriations, Senator Ben Pangelinan, sent a letter to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, requesting her assistance to represent Guam's interest related to potential funding from the United States Health and Human Services Administration. The federal management team of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse claims it lost those funds for its proposed center.

Pangelinan also sent a letter to the FMT to work with Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo and the Government of Guam to determine the reason for withholding any funding to help with concerns brought forth by the courts. Pangelinan says with the challenges that GovGuam faces today, matters should also include funding to ensure that federally mandated services are available for residents.
