Guam - A public hearing meanwhile was held on Bill 16 introduced by Public Safety Chairperson Adolpho Palacios. The measures would change the composition of the Territorial Parole Board. They are changes, according to Palacios, that are a long time coming.

He says the last significant amendments to the law were made 41 years ago. The lawmaker says the legislation reflects the changes that have evolved in the philosophy and treatment and rehabilitation of inmates. Bill 16 would require two members to have ten years in law enforcement or advanced education in criminal justice, two members to hold bachelors degree in sociology, psychology or have experience in social work or rehabilitative work and the remaining three members must have ten years experience in human resources development or career development.

The bill is similar to bill 418 which was passed in the last legislature but vetoed by former Governor Felix Camacho.
