Guam - Guam Delegate Madeleine Bordallo's office is accepting written testimony on HR 44 or the Guam World War Ii Loyalty Recognition Act. A hearing on the measure is scheduled for next Friday Guam time in the nation's capitol before a subcommittee of the House Natural Resources Committee. The panel will be accepting verbal testimony but you must be invited to testify.

KUAM News has confirmed Governor Eddie Calvo, who is currently in DC, has been invited and will testify before the subcommittee. As for everyone else, you can submit written testimony by dropping it off to the congresswoman's district office in Hagatna or you can fax it to 477-2587. The deadline to do so is Tuesday, July 26.

Your testimony will be included in the congressional record.

HR 44 provides compensation to survivors of the Japanese occupation of Guam during World War II. It removes claims and payments to their heirs and descendants.
