Guam - Guam Contractors Association president James Martinez says he can understand the Senate's concerns about justifying the costs for the buildup, but for now he'll wait for the final version of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act. He told KUAM News, "There's some concern but it's just a process that we've just got to face that process but when comments are made that we're gonna put this military buildup on hold.

"Of course, the radars start going off and red flags start going up but people don't realize because maybe they don't see it but there's already close to a billion dollars worth of work that's currently being done on Guam that's already been awarded."

Martinez says they were anticipating a half-billion dollars worth of military construction projects over the next five years, if the Senate's cuts are successful, that would of course would be out the window.
