Guam - Lawmakers were back in session and discussing legislation dealing with southern bridges, a measure dealing with election reform and legislation involving the Chamorro Land Trust Commission. Meanwhile on Monday they passed four bills and sent several others to the voting file; among the measures that passed include Bill 103, which would reprogram DOE ARRA for CIP projects to go toward operations instead.

This concept has already been run through USDOE, which supports the reprogramming. DOE has spent only about one percent of its ARRA funding. The deadline to use it or lose it is this September. Also passed Bill 142, which amends public law to extend the deadline for law enforcement agencies and DPW to repair respective fleet of vehicles.
