Chamber publishes 'Leverage Paper'

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam Chamber of Commerce chairman Kaleo Moylan says the membership has finalized what they are calling the "Leverage Paper". The document would help to benefit the people of Guam during the time of the military buildup. The former lieutenant governor says he met with the Guam legislature and Governor Eddie Calvo today to discuss the document, which he says includes efforts to secure a permanent political status for Guam.

"One is through challenging the Supreme Court's ruling on it the 1901 insular cases or through getting congress to recognize Guam as an incorporated territory of the United States," explained Moylan. "It was something that I had pushed when I was lieutenant governor; there's a number of issues that are not uniquely mine but ideas that came from the community, certainly the quest for political status has been long standing."  

Moylan says with the Leverage Paper they are hoping to create a commission with others in the region to discuss a joint political unification effort. The document also states that Guam's historical culture sites be reverted back to its original state.
