Guam - The chairperson for the Legislative Committee on the Military Buildup will hold a number of hearings in the next couple weeks to get further information on the impacts the Marines relocation from Okinawa to Guam will have on the territory. Senator Judi Guthertz says the hearings will focus on various aspects of the buildup including land issues and utilities.

"We'll be inviting the governor's representatives to participate. We'll be having a hearing on the programmatic agreement. We'll be having a hearing on other aspects of the buildup to find out how the governor is organizing his office and his team to address lots of concerns," Guthertz explained.  

The Democrat says she will also conduct hearings on preparations for the anticipated H2 workers as well as housing variances that are being granted by the Guam Land Use Commission for temporary workers housing applications. The senator is currently working on a schedule for those hearings.
