Guam - Acting Governor Ray Tenorio says he's willing to go back to the table to address not only the Retirement Fund's concerns, but other departments as well to meet in the middle. "We want to work with whoever wants to work in good faith and that being the retirement board, the legislature and anyone else but come to the table and find us $52-72 million so we can pay your tax refunds on time," he said.

He further added that while the reception to Bill 507 hasn't been all welcoming, he suggests that the democratic leadership either lead or get out of the way in figuring out areas to cut to pay for tax refunds.

"We don't need any more rhetoric or any more excuses.  If you've got an idea on how to cut, it's time to cut.  The reason we're cutting isn't because we want to it's because we've got not choice. We didn't get into this administration to do what everybody else has done before we got in here to make this island go in a new direction that means paying refunds when they're due and we don't need a court to tell us we already knew," he said.
