Guam - U.S. senators Jim Webb and Carl Levin will be on Guam next week and are expected to spend some time with elected leaders. The two are scheduled to arrive on Guam on Monday afternoon and depart the island on Tuesday evening.
Speaker Judi Won Pat's staffers confirm that she has requested a meeting on behalf of the 31st Guam Legislature. Webb is currently on a tour of various Asian countries and is expected to visit Okinawa, Guam and Tinian as a follow up to the visits her made last year to discuss the proposed realignment of troops to Guam.
The two senators' visit to the territory comes just a few days after a group of 15 U.S. senators made a fuel stop to Guam en route to Hong Kong, snubbing local leaders except the congresswoman who greeted them at Andersen Air Force Base.
