Guam - Travel has been halted at the Port Authority until ground is broken on the multi-million dollar modernization effort.  The Port Authority board made the decision during today's meeting to suspend all travel requests until such time that modernization projects actually get underway.

Port board vice chair Mike Benito said, "If there's anything here that's absolutely we are going to lose funding or any type of major certification, I've always been a proponent of training, etc. but in the absence of money, certification then my preference is that all management is hands on deck until this DOD thing is done."

The Port must first obtain approval from the Maritime Administration on the implementation plan that will essentially act as the playbook for how the agency's modernization plan will roll out.  Officials are about 90% complete with negotiations and expect final MARAD approval in the next month or two.
