Guam - Guam Buildup Office Director Eddie Reyes says they sent the proposed military buildup needs of the Government of Guam to Governor Eddie Calvo so that the plan can be discussed with Department of the Interior officials in Washington, DC. The plan includes various upgrades to the existing GovGuam agencies, such as four new schools, a police precinct in Yigo as well as upgrades to the airport.

While Reyes could not release the estimated costs for the projects at this time, committee chair on the military buildup Senator Judi Guthertz says she favors the Administration's efforts. She said, "I told them that they have to make sure the fiscal infrastructure needs of Guam are collected in the DOI request as well as the social infrastructure including education and health and all of those areas, we've been saying this from the beginning."

DOI is mandated to submit the report to Congress regarding the civilian infrastructure improvements needed for the buildup by July 7.

In the meantime, Guthertz says she still has yet to hear an update from the Navy on the proposed firing ranges along Route 15. She continues to push the military to meet with residents in the area.
