Guam - There will be no special session this morning on Bill 257. The measure seeks to appropriate funds to keep FQ Sanchez elementary school in Umatac open for the upcoming school year. Speaker Judi Won Pat tells KUAM the committee report for the bill is not ready and remains with senator Ben Pangelinan's office.

Won Pat says she instead is waiting for the finance committee to finalize the complete packet for the Department of Educations fy2012 budget rather than hold an emergency session for the Umatac campus alone. She is also hoping to meet in caucus with her colleagues today to iron out the details DOEs budget. Won Pat says only then will she decide to call regular session tomorrow morning to discuss solely DOEs entire budget, including with bill 257.

Governor Eddie Calvo has stated he is in favor of keeping FQ Sanchez open and would sign the bill if passed on the session floor as is, without any riders or amendments.
