Guam - The Navy may be willing to conduct a Supplemental Environmental Impact Study to determine where it will put live fire training ranges for the Marines, but they are still pushing for a lawsuit over the issue to be dismissed. According to the latest filing, the Navy reiterates that it has made no final decision for the firing range complex. 

The Guam Preservation Trust, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and We Are Guahan filed suit against proposed plans to locate the range in the Pagat area on Route 15.  The Navy has moved to dismiss the suit contending no selection has been made and a decision won't be made until after a SEIS is conducted. 

Officials have stated that it believes additional analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act is appropriate.  The process would begin early next year and would take at least two years to complete.
