Guam - Lawmakers will convene in special session on Tuesday morning for the sole purpose of acting on Bill 257, which seeks to appropriate enough money to keep F.Q. Sanchez Elementary School open this school year. The committee report from the public hearing on the measure was turned in this afternoon and today the bill's author, Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr., was given assurances by the governor that the bill, if passed by lawmakers with no riders or changes, would be signed into law.

Governor Eddie Calvo said his administration will allow the education board to make their decisions autonomously but stressed that they are not in support of closing schools and making cuts that affect students.

Lawmakers are set to go into session at nine o'clock Tuesday morning.
