Measure increases autonomy of AGO

Posted: Updated:

Guam – Hoping to increase the autonomy of the Attorney General's office on matter involving finances and personnel, Senator Adolpho Palacios introduced bill 286 that recognizes the AGO encounters difficulties with government bureaucracy especially in areas of budget allotment and personnel recruitment. The measure would authorize the AG to receive no less that one-twelfth of its approved budget on the first day of every month from the Department of administration. Palacios states, "This bill seeks to grant the AGO a level of autonomy similar to the PDSC relative to recruitment, hiring and retention of agency personnel, and the proper administration of financial matters.  This will only enhance its independence and its credibility in the rendering of legal opinions, carrying out its prosecutor responsibilities and performing the other duties of the Office."
