Guam - Lawmakers will have a busy schedule come Monday, as a couple of confirmation hearings will be held for those appointed to the Chamorro Land Trust Commission. Public testimony will be received for Michael Borja and Rita Franquez to sit on the commission.
Then, they're expected to receive testimony on a bill that would authorize the Guam Police Department to continue operations at its headquarters and administrative offices in Tiyan. Bill 45 would allow GPD to operate there until a permanent headquarters and administrative office facility is constructed or identified. GPD's lease will end later this year.
Lawmakers will also receive testimony Monday on Bill 56 relative to policymakers participating in the Government of Guam's health insurance negotiating team. The hearings begin at 9am at the Legislature's Public Hearing Room in Hagatna.
