Guam - Prior to testifying at the hearing for Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz's Bill 3, Governor Eddie Calvo dropped by the offices of senators Judi Guthertz and Rory Respicio to discuss Tuesday's announcement. That he has begun empanelling the Guam First Commission, something the previous administration would not do.   

According to a media release from Senator Guthertz, Governor Calvo also took the time to personally respond to her letter cautioning him to hold off on signing the Programmatic Agreement. "If those adjustments can be made then I see no problem signing a Programmatic Agreement," he noted. But if those adjustments can't be made and modifications are not made that are satisfactory to this administration which we believe are in the best interest of the people of Guam, then we'll be forced not to sign the agreement."

Senator Guthertz commended the governor for his initiative. The release stating in the last eight years his predecessor was never known to drop by the offices of lawmakers for a chat.
