Posted: Updated:

Guam - Senator Tina Muna Barnes is questioning Governor Eddie Calvo about excess federal land that is not slated for the military buildup. Barnes provided documents to the governor that shows that last October the Guam Economic Development Authority through the Civilian Military Task Force identified 2,000 acres of federal land.

The properties include Radio, Barrigada the Nimitz Hill Annex and Andersen South, among others. She states although former governor Felix Camacho was urged to pursue the return of these lands with the Secretary of the Navy; she is not certain that this advice was taken.

Barnes is now urging Calvo to seek the return of the excess land to their original landowners, as well as asked that these lands not be exchanged for any civilian property required for the buildup.
