Guam - Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz applauds Archbishop Anthony Apuron for his new position on Bill 33, which ends the statute of limitations on the prosecution of sex crimes against children. But according to a release from Cruz's office, the senator said the only way to prevent more sex crimes against children is to bring the sexual predators in the community to light, which he says is the intent of Bill 34.

He says he hopes the archbishop reconsiders his views on this particular measure. He says the window legislation will assist the authorities in identifying the predator, which may allow victims to come forward.

For the time being, the vice-speaker is confident that Governor Eddie Calvo will consider Bill 34 on its merits that it would protect children and family on Guam.
