Guam – Legislation was introduced to uphold the integrity of individual GovGuam agencies, as well as protect government employees. Senator Aline Yamashita is the author of Bill 387, which would involve the Civil Service Commission in the review of proposed personnel rules and regulations before it is submitted to the Legislature for action. She says the commission should review the continuously changing rules of agencies. Yamashita states, " As Government of Guam departments and programs change processes and procedures, this measure will help ensure contradictions are eliminated, and proposed rules and regulations are within statutory bounds. This bill proposes that the CSC review the proposals.
Additionally, it is often that employees transfer from one department to another. An assurance that the rules and regulations are consistent and fair will help the employee and the agency.
