Guam - The Obama Administration says although they support House passage of HR2055 which appropriates funding for military construction and the Department of Veterans Affair they have a few concerns. One of those concerns is a provision dealing with incremental funding for several military construction projects for areas such as Guam.

HR2055 also defers funding for Fiscal Year 2012 military construction projects related to the Marines relocation. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo says the Obama Administration's policy statement ".. Underscores the importance of the military build-up to our national security and maintaining stability in our region. "

Bordallo says that the Administration's support indicates that the Senate cuts and provisions are unworkable and harmful to our strategic position in Asia and the Pacific.

Bordallo says that she will work with her colleagues in the House to restore military construction funds.
