Guam - Guam will continue its efforts with the china visa waiver in light of the recent resignation of secretary of homeland security Janet Napolitano. Governor Eddie Calvo's chief policy advisor Arthur Clark says while several intelligence issues will still remain over the China visa waiver, he hopes a new replacement will give the issue a new focus.
"But this is a good opportunity though for us to kind of restart the introduction of the issue and so we can go to whoever is in charge we've written numerous letters to Janet Napolitano so this will be our chance to reintroduce the issue and kind of kick off fresh like that and again maybe the person who ends up eventually in charge comes from a history of sympathy for economic growth in the states and territories," he told KUAM News.
Clark says he believes a decision on the China visa waiver will be made this year. Napolitano is the first female homeland security secretary and will leave her post by the end of August to become the president of the University of California.
