Guam - Visiting senators Jim Webb and Carl Levin hosted a dinner for Governor Eddie Calvo last night. The island's chief executive discussed at length several issues related to the military buildup including the unfair treatment of local businesses in contract awards and issues involving the China-Russia waiver program.
