Guam - Public Law 32-031 is set to go into full affect next month. Introduced by Senator Michael San Nicolas earlier this year, the measure set to provide educational programs for members of boards and commissions.

San Nicolas says while many people on boards and commissions go in with good intentions, mistakes are usually made due to a lack of awareness.

"And so what we can hope for is that we'll be seeing less procurement issues, less court issues, and both of those will result in more savings to the government it's always a good thing when our decision makers are more educated on the actual laws and regulations that apply to them," he said.

San Nicolas says the directors of agencies are required to come up with an education program explaining the rules and regulations and laws that apply to that particular board 90 days after the law's enactment which is on August 8.
