Guam - Hoping to move forward with the China visa waiver program along with ensuring there is no potential threat to the Navy on Guam, Naval Criminal Investigative Service officials were on island to meet with island leaders this week.

Although the NCIS officials from Washington, DC, San Diego and Hawaii were not at liberty to discuss specific details, Speaker Judi Won Pat noted that the biggest task at hand is coming up with a mitigation plan before any decision is actually made regarding the visa waiver program. "They were saying that this is doable and they were leaning towards it but of course the government showed that they do everything to find out what the potential problems and threats and how it could be mitigated," she recalled.

Won Pat adds lawmakers were pleased of the opportunity to raise their concerns and hope to hear an update from the NCIS soon.
