Guam - Hoping to bring more transparency to the government of Guam's operational expenditures, Senator Tony Ada introduced Bill 83, calling for monthly posting on the Bureau of Budget & Management Research web site of all unbudgeted authorizations and expenditures, expenditures for prior year obligations and payments for tax refunds.
Ada states," It is important to know what our government is spending money for at any given time. We know that certain expenses are not being met despite revenue being collected for those purposes. In addition, financial information made public varies from source to source.
"As policymakers, senators must have up-to-date, definitive information on the state of GovGuam finances. In fact, this information should be available to anyone who wants to know."
