Guam - Reacting to the AG opinion finding the Healthcare Insurance Act inorganic, Healthcare Committee chairman Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr. says it's up to the body to see how they will proceed and move forward. He adds he will ask the attorney general and the legislature's legal counsel for clarification before proceeding with the negotiating team

He said, "As representatives of the people if and when a proposal does not meet the mandates that the legislature had put in place or things that wont benefit our people, then I think we have that responsibility and obligation to voice those concerns."

In terms of his mindset going into the negotiations, Senator Rodriguez says he plans to make sure that retirees and employees will benefit and he plans to cut the fluff. Meanwhile, as we reported acting DOA director Benita Manglona told KUAM that several responses were submitted from the GovGuam health insurance RFP.
