Guam - Offering an opportunity for a Guam Fire Department fire chief and Guam Police Department chief of police to be reinstated to their previous positions without a drop in pay, Public Safety Committee Chair Senator Adolpho Palacios introduced Bill 422. he says the bill came at the request of the GFD fire chief.

He told KUAM News, "I kind of feel awkward about that because two years ago I repealed the provision of the law but there is a difference between this one bill and the old law. What happened in the old law was there was an attempt by a former captain who was appointed chief to come down and by the time this person was going to return, the standard for the position had been upgraded so in actuality if this person returned to the position then he would not qualify."
