Guam - After finding out from the Navy plans for the military buildup may change from those in the Record of Decision, chairperson of the Committee on the Buildup Senator Judi Guthertz questions Navy Assistant Secretary Jackalyne Pfannenstiel if the buildup is even going to happen at all. Guthertz says the issue has intensified as a super budget cutting committee in Washington goes to work with one Republican senator proposing to ax the entire Guam buildup and send the marines back to the U.S. Mainland.

"We have to make sure that we do everything we can to ensure that we have not been seduced and abandoned on this buildup initiative, we put a lot of effort into this, many people on Guam have been working hard on this in trying to make sure that the buildup be reasonable and fair to us," she said.

Meantime, Senator Guthertz also expressed she is looking forward to working with Pfannenstiel on the Buildup Master Plan.
