Posted: Updated:

Guam - Human Resources Committee chairman senator Rory Respicio fired off another letter to Adelup requesting Acting Governor Ray Tenorio rescind the executive order that separated the Agency Human Resources Development from the Department of Labor. Respicio says he will not hold a public hearing for Frank Roberto to head AHRD unless and until he is assured the separation does not have any negative impacts on the employees.

He expressed his concern that the EO jeopardizes the status of several DOL employees whose salaries are paid with federal funding through AHRD. He is also asking Adelup to identify a funding source for the separation of the two agencies saying DOL's current budget cannot afford such a move.

He also requested for evidence the decision is practical especially with the government's ongoing economic concerns.
