Governor Eddie Calvo says a meeting will be held Thursday, telling KUAM News, "If there ever was an individual to have these open and frank discussions and where decisions could be made, that's the individual that can make those decisions, so I look forward to putting forward the issues that the people of Guam and this government feel are important in regards to the [Programmatic Agreement], and I'm hopeful that the Navy will move forward in resolving the issues that we brought forward."

Governor Calvo says he will be receiving recommendations on the PA from his senior advisor, Arthur Clark, tomorrow. In terms of a request from the Legislature to immediately empanel the Guam First Commission so they can meet with the delegation. The governor says he's working on it, saying, "I fully intend to move forward with that we are going to be working our staff over the next few days to ensure that we get this Guam First Commission empanelled."
