Guthertz cautions gov about signing PA

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Senator Judi Guthertz, who chairs the Legislature's Buildup Committee, is cautioning Governor Eddie Calvo to hold-off on signing the Programmatic Agreement because of the ongoing lawsuit involving Pagat that was filed by the national and local preservation trust organizations.

The Democrat in a letter to the governor says it could undermine their efforts.  Governor's spokesperson Phil Leon Guerrero said, "Governor Calvo takes Senator Guthertz's comments and suggestions definitely to heart one of the reasons he asked for more time to review the PA and ultimately the DoD granted that extension was so that he could do proper and thorough review of this very technical document. That's what is being done right now its currently underway with our legal team and other experts and ultimately like Governor Calvo said if he feels the document is not in best interest of people he will not sign it."

The lawsuit is scheduled to be heard in the federal court in Hawaii on Valentine's Day. Meanwhile, GovGuam has been given until the end of the month to act on the Programmatic Agreement.
