Guam - Members of the 31st Guam Legislature had planned on voting on several bills on Friday night as they met in session downtown, but senators decided to table such processes until the start of the workweek.

Several topics of importance were on the agenda, all coming on the heels of members passing and sending to Adelup Bill 127 (more on that in a moment), which ensures legislative consent for the governor selecting GMH's trustees.

Pending are bills including those relative to the public-private partnerships for the Port Authority, administrative help for the Guam Police Review Commission, the government's drug-free Safe Harbor program, and the mandating that minutes from all agency meetings be posted online.

Senators are sitting in recess over the weekend, with members voting on the remaining bills Monday at 2.
