Roundtable focuses on political status

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - A roundtable meeting will be held at the end of this week on three separate measures dealing with Guam's political status. Senator Rory Respicio, who will chair the meeting, says first up for discussion is Bill 151, introduced by Senator Tina Muna Barnes that would consider Guam's voter's during the 2012 General Election to conduct a non-binding straw poll to determine preferred political status for Guam.

Also on the agenda are Bills 154 and 168. Those pieces of legislation were introduced by Senator Judi Guthertz, and is relative to the registration, education campaign and voting process for the plebiscite on political status, while the second bill considers Guam voters to determine whether residents support any reunification with the CNMI.

She said, "Rather than have a public hearing on these bills that have competing outcomes, really to have a roundtable discussion to call in the stakeholders the people that have been plowing the trenches for decades really to have a greater participation and want to have the people of Guam have their right to self-determination."

The roundtable is scheduled for this Friday at 2pm at the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
