Roundtable discussion held on CSS

Guam - Just this morning, a roundtable was held to get input from island lawmakers on the Compatibility Sustainability Study. The Military Buildup Committee had issued 57 areas of commentary on the Draft CSS.  The deadline to provide comments is this Friday.

Buildup Committee chairperson Senator Judi Guthertz found some areas of the study that she feels need to be rewritten - for example, the military would like to extend their fences for the buildup by another 33 feet. "That, of course, would deal with private land or government land and we recommended that instead of doing that, they bring in their fences in 33 feet or have those zones within their own area," she explained.

The Buildup Committee is hopeful their comments will lend to a better study that combines the needs of the military with those of the civilian community.
