Guam - Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio this afternoon signed a pair of proclamations. First, declaring May 15-21 as National Transportation Week and May 20 as National Defense Transportation Day. Tenorio says there is a need to improve the local policies regarding logistics and transportation to ensure it matches regulations with the federal government.

National Defense Transportation Association Vice President Franklin Leon Guerrero read from the proclamation that states Guam and America's transportation system is vital to our daily lives in ensuring safety and security. He said, "The transportation system connects us to the rest of the world brining us closer and enhancing goods being imported to our island and services utilized by our people; it contributes to the global economy and it is critical in bringing visitors to and from our island."

Leon Guerrero adds a commitment to transportation upgrades will allow for businesses to grow and more job openings.
