Posted: Updated:

Guam - Military Buildup Committee chairperson Senator Judi Guthertz is frustrated that some Pentagon-based officials are denying responsibility for problems tied to the Marines relocation from Okinawa to Guam. Guthertz is appealing for help to the Obama Administration to have the Federal Aviation Administration address the concerns she has been getting regarding restrictions for military flights over Tumon hotels and the hospital area.

Guthertz's recent concerns were sent to the chairperson of the Council on Environmental Quality. She told KUAM Ness of her actions, "I wrote to Nancy Sutley asking for her intervention to see if she can help us out, as you know the air power on the island is going to increase tremendously over the next few years and we just want to make sure that certain areas are protected form too much aircraft noise."

Guthertz says we need the support from the federal government to ensure the One Guam approach is the end result.
