Guam - Legislation was introduced that hopes to improve safety in Guam's beaches. Bill 204, authored by Senator Mana Silva Taijeron, seeks to ensure continues safety and in some instances reinforce safety measures in the island's waters. The measure calls for the Department of Parks & Recreation to conduct a safety review of the beaches, and provide a report to the legislature by January 31 of next year on the findings and recommendations that would prevent more tragedies from happening in our waters.

The measure also includes the assistance of Guam Police, Guam Fire, Department of agriculture and Guam EPA. The final report would also detail whether there is a need for GovGuam to secure additional resources.
