Bill nixes citizenship requirement for board

Posted: Updated:

Guam - As a result of what happened to former Chuuk State President Dr. Ancito Walter, legislation has been introduced by Senator Tony Ada and co-sponsored by Dr. Judi Guthertz that would remove a provision in Guam law prohibiting non U.S. citizens from sitting on the Guam Education Policy Board.

This particular clause law led to Governor Eddie Calvo having to withdraw his appointment of Walter, and in turn appoint Dr. Anita Enriquez. Elected members to the board would still be subject to the U.S. citizen requirement.

Meanwhile we will see for the first time the governor's appointees in action as a special board meeting will be held this week to discuss financial matters.
