Guam - The first round of confirmation hearings for the appointees to fill the governor's cabinet is being held today. Appearing before members of the Guam Legislature are John Camacho appointed to serve as director of Rev & Tax, Benita Manglona to serve as the Director of the Bureau of Budget Management and Research and Anisia Terlaje to serve as the director of Land Management.

Representatives from the community like Bob Steffy testified in support of Camacho's nomination saying he is an honest, hardworking and dedicated public servant, others who testified in support included former DRT Director Art Ilagan. Meanwhile when it was Camachos' turn to face lawmakers, Committee Chair on Appropriations Senator Ben Pangelinan asked him about the more than $55 million in the Work To Pay Tax Credit that was spent by the previous administration of which Camacho served in. Pangelinan asked whether he felt the money was illegally spent.

Camacho said he didn't have direct control over that money but rather it was under the custodial control of the Department of Administration. He added the decision was made by that agency to use the money.
