Guam - Committee oversight chair on the military buildup Senator Judi Guthertz remains optimistic that the feds will do their part to minimize the use of land on Guam for the Marines relocation. Guthertz says she made the recommendation more than one year ago to the Joint Guam Program Office that the military should consider building vertically rather expanding their footprint.

She says the recent visit from high-ranking Navy officials showed some promise that they are considering her suggestion. "Let's see where it goes it makes sense to me that they do it in other places like Hawaii, they've done it in Korea, Japan and other areas so why can't they do it here," she told KUAM News.

Guthertz says officials also paid a visit to Andersen Air Force Base to see what existing military lands can be used for the Marines.
