Guam - With the U.S. Senate already looking to cut funding for the Guam buildup, more not-so-good news from the nation's capitol. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo is concerned with the Navy's decision to delay awarding some Japanese funded buildup contracts.

The Navy has decided to postpone awarding a contract for the Apra Harbor Clinic. Bordallo expressed her concerns to Navy Undersecretary Robert Work, saying the action sends a mixed message about the future of the buildup and is inconsistent with the intent of the Japanese Government to spend this money in preparation of the relocation of U.S. Marines from Okinawa to Guam. 

The delegate says the decision is detrimental to Guam's economy and to local businesses and the Navy should utilize all available funds to ensure the buildup progresses in a timely manner.
