Cruz pegs Bordallo about missed opportunity

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz sent a letter to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo regarding a missed opportunity for the Guam World War II Loyalty Recognition Act. According to Cruz, a recent settlement between the Department of the Interior and treasury and Indian and Black farmer plaintiffs provides them $4.55 billion.

The settlement is for mismanaged funds and other trust assets including royalties owed to those for oil and other things and to settle the claim that black farmers were unfairly refused loans by the department of agriculture. Cruz questioned Bordallo why she hadn't been aware of the movement through the House and Senate.

He says had she acted more quickly, $185 million needed for the Guam Loyalty Act may have been considered as an amendment.
