Guam - Senators with the 31st Guam Legislature got their dose of ethics training this afternoon. Speaker Judi Won Pat says law passed during the 28th Guam Legislature mandates the training. She says two individuals from the University of Guam conducted the event where lawmakers learned an array of procedures on being more transparent and accountable, especially when dealing with government funds.

Won Pat stated, "They are going to try to fulfill what is required by law, procurement laws and regulations, contracting laws, fiduciary responsibility, personnel policy, ethics laws and lobbying laws and the Open Government Law and the Sunshine Reform Act."

The legislative speaker adds that the training is required for all elected officials, government appointees and unclassified employees.
