Cockpit licensing board informally meets


GUAM - Due to the open government law and public notice requirements, the Cockpit Licensing Board did meet today but did so informally. The Cockpit Licensing Board as we reported, has not met for over a decade. The three- member board only has two appointed members so far with Donald Taitano and Thomas Tanaka Jr. Board members spoke with Rev and Tax representatives today on what is required of them as board members, what rules are in place for the board to implement and regulate, and how to move the commission forward. Tanaka says he ultimately hopes to get the current operators licensed properly.
 
"It's an industry that has been unregulated and uncontrolled for the last ten years and so we'd like to get the license current and the operators so they can properly operate under a license and the government can collect taxes from those licenses" Tanaka explained.
 
As we reported, Rev and Tax director John Camacho has indicated that public law authorizes three different cockpits on island- one in the north, south and central Guam. The next meeting has yet to be rescheduled.
