Guam - After working as the director for the Department of Youth Affairs, freshman senator Chris Duenas was happy to see two of his bills signed into law today that aid financially-challenged students go to college.

Governor Eddie Calvo signed Bill 192, which establishes the Growing Guam's Workforce Scholarship Program; and Bill 198, which establishes the Every Child is Entitled to A Higher Education Scholarship Program - both of which aim to provide economically-disadvantaged students with the ability to experience post-secondary education and seek out other financial means to remain in school, determine a course of study and complete a certificate or degree program.

Meanwhile, Governor Calvo also signed Bill 273 which deletes a portion of the 1966 Highway Master Plan Reservation easement in Sinajana.
