San Nicolas discusses bills to improve government

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - Speaking before the Rotary Club of Tumon Bay, Senator Michael San Nicolas discussed several of the measures he's introduced since entering office seven months ago from accounting for the people's money to providing merchant services for the Government of Guam.

He further discussed his most recent legislation with Bill 149 which aims to repeal the controversial Bill 19 now Public Law 32-060. He says its best for the measure to have a public hearing in order to have the legislature's full support along with the governor's signature.

He said, "He said he's going to veto it but I believe if we go through the whole hearing process and allow the community to elaborate on their reasons why they don't why the bill, the public law now, I feel we'll be able to get that bill repealed."

No public hearing has been set yet on Bill 149 but has since been referred to Senator Dennis Rodriguez's committee.
