GUAM - More than a handful of measures will go up for public hearing tomorrow at the Guam Legislature. The committee on health will hold a hearing at 9 A.M. on senator Dennis Rodriguez's Bill 132. That measure would pledge two million dollars annually in compact impact money to pay a 13 million dollar loan that GMH is already authorized to obtain through public law.
Introduced in the 30th Guam Legislature. Governor Eddie Calvo pledged his full support to the bill. Later in the evening at 6 P.M., the Committee on Utilities will hold a hearing on two measures dealing with the system development charge including Senator Tina Muna Barnes Bill 93 which would eliminate the SDC for first time homeowners of affordable homes. Senators Tom Ada and Rory Respicios's Bill 112 meanwhile will also be heard described as a compromise to Bill 93 that instead would not eliminate the SDC completely but create an affordable housing system development charge aimed to make the SDC less burdensome for those building low cost and affordable homes.
