Guam - Speaker Judi Won Pat says Chief Justice's F. Philip Carbullido's mention of reduced work hours and additional austerity measures in his State of the Judiciary Address this morning is reflective of the financial crisis that is impacting the entire government. She stated, "Somehow it's very evident to us that something is missing here because even the first quarter, the first $21 million dollars, you would think that income tax returns would be paid out and they haven't been paid out and the COLA monies have not been released.

"The hay study has not been implemented even though money was already appropriated so we're just kind of asking the question what is really going on here. Is it worse than we really think is?"

The speaker is asking the Calvo Administration and the Office of Finance & Budget to begin dialogue to discuss the government's overall financial condition as officials get ready for the balancing act for the Fiscal Year 2012 budget.
