Guam - A delegation from the U.S. Government Accountability Office is on Guam this week assessing the adequacy of compact impact funding for Guam. It's part of a comprehensive study they are working on to evaluate the adequacy of compact assistance for other areas like the FSM, Marshall Islands and Palau.

The review will also include a look at past expenses and assess the quality of the reports associated with the direct and indirect impacts of Freely Associated States citizens living in the territory. Guam Delegate Madeleine Bordallo says she's confident the GAO report will help assess the true impact of Compact migration, while Governor Calvo says the fact finding mission is a good step in the right direction to parity when it comes to Compact impact.
