Guam - It was late last month when Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz's Committee on General government operations held its last roundtable discussion to discuss the governor's spending cuts bills specifically provisions related to the Government of Guam Retirement Fund. According to Cruz, after hearing from all parties relative to Bill 507, he hopes to complete the committee report by the end of this week.

He tells KUAM News that feedback from all the public hearings on the bill including the Retirement Fund's opposition to the governor's proposals to an early retirement incentive program will be taken into account when completing the report.

The report should be complete in time for when the Committee on Rules meets on Monday, November 19 at 2pm to set the agenda for session, which Speaker Judi Won Pat has called for the following day at 9am.
