Guam - While the government works to get its financial house in order, it has been given a reprieve from having to come up with $3 million, at least for the next 60 days. District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall granted the government's request for a two-month extension of having to comply with the court's payment schedule for the amended permanent injunction.
The court has required the government to come up with $15.9 million by July 2013. The federal management team will use the money to help the Government of Guam come into compliance with providing adequate care for individuals with disabilities.
With the extension the government must now come up with one million dollars by April 1 and another $2 million by May 1.
