Guam - The White House's Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget issued a statement of Administration's policy regarding the Senate's proposed NDAA for 2012. "The Administration has serious concerns with the limitation on execution of the United States and Government of Japan funds to implement the realignment of United States Marine forces from Okinawa to Guam.

"The bill would unnecessarily restrict the ability and flexibility to the president to execute our foreign and defense policies with our ally, Japan. The statement also reflected concerns about the lack of authorization of appropriations for military construction projects in Guam and that eliminating or deferring such projects could send the unintended message that the United States does not stand by its allies or its agreements."
