Guam - Governor's chief policy adviser Arthur Clark says he's still reviewing the possibility of suing the federal government for hundreds of millions of dollars that are owed in compact impact reimbursements. Earlier this week Senator Frank Blas, Jr. sent a letter to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, asking that the feds come to the table to discuss the money that is owed to Guam or prepare to be sued.
Attorney Clark says he has no objection to Blas' letter, saying, "The people of Guam have been patient and we recognize that the Compact Impact reimbursements are falling far short of the actual impact. We've been trying to resolve this through some kind of mutual consensus with the federal government, but at some point and time, when that's not working, we have to explore all alternatives."
