Reorganization discussed during meeting

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Calvo Administration's reorganization plan was brought up during today's brief special economic services meeting at the Guam Legislature. Lawmakers were concerned that the reason why reorganization was being implemented was because of Bill 257, which the governor signed, giving the department of education an additional eleven million dollars in next fiscal year's budget.

During the SES meeting Bureau of Budget Management & Research director John Rios and Department of Administration Director Benita Manglona said Bill 257 was not the reason for the reorganization, with the latter saying, "I guess what happened is that it reinforced the decision to reorganize but that had always been in the works because of the cash challenges we've been having."

Although the SES meeting was supposed to go over the latest revenue projections from the Administration, it had to be postponed for the third time because BBMR is still compiling an expenditure report. The meeting will reconvene Monday afternoon.
