Guam - Republicans in the 31st Guam Legislature have a list of demands they'd like Governor Eddie Calvo to push for before signing the Programmatic Agreement for the military buildup. They include closure to unresolved issues such as war reparations, full reimbursement for Compact impact costs, the feds fully provide support for services such as social and emotional needs resulting from the buildup, USDOE must provide for the schooling needs of our growing population, the feds must provide for all infrastructure requirements and support a blinding plebiscite as the people of Guam determine their political status.

The letter was sent to Calvo, President Barack Obama, Navy Secretary Ron Mabus, Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, Navy Undersecretary Robert Work and Assistant Secretary of the Navy Jackalynne Pfannensteil.
