Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo today announced that the House Armed Services Committee chair Ike Skelton re-introduced a revised version of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011. Bordallo says the new version contains the compromise to H.R. 44 that was offered during conference on last year's defense bill.

The Guam delegate adds that with continued opposition to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" provisions in this year's bill the only possibility of passage in the Senate was a revised version.

Bordallo states, "It is imperative that our manamko' receive the reparations they deserve for the suffering that they endured during World War II. I remain hopeful that the revised version of the FY11 NDAA will pass the House and Senate and ultimately be signed into law by President Obama."
