Guam - Senator Ben Pangelinan would like Governor Eddie Calvo to pick up the pace and make the rest of the appointees to the Chamorro Land Trust Commission. Rita Franquez and Michael Borja are the only two of the required five to be appointed thus far and had their confirmation hearing Monday.

In a letter to the governor, Pangelinan wrote that it is crucial the appointments be made immediately because commissioners play a key role in providing guidance to the administrator. On Monday, CLTC Administrator Monte Mafnas provided an update on what he's been doing since taking over the agency. He's looking to go after $1.3 million in revenue owed to the agency, but needs the board's approval.

The lawmaker is asking the governor submit his three nominees immediately.
