Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo says she is disappointed with the passage of HR 1540 by the House of Representatives. "The bill does not prioritize our national security needs in the Asia-Pacific region and does not recognize the Administration's efforts to strengthen our military posture in Asia. This is a temporary setback, and I will continue to work with stakeholders to address concerns raised in Conference so that we may move forward with the build-up." The 2012 NDAA cuts $33 million dollars and freezes further funding for the Guam Realignment. It heads to the Senate and then to President Barack Obama where he's likely to sign it.
