Guam - Proposed legislation for the construction of a new prison should be introduced this week.
Senator Brant McCreadie says the measure is complete and is a bi-partisan effort with 10 senators signed on a co-sponsors. He adds plans for a new prison has sparked inquiries from possible investments from off-island. "So it's drawn up a lot of interest and some people have also expressed their interest of flying over to Guam and see what options they have as far as the space and the land mass and where they're going to build," he expressed.
McCreadie would not divulge who the interested investors are specifically only saying at least one is coming to Guam this month with at least $16 billion in assets.
It was last month when Senator McCreadie spearheaded a tour of the Department of Corrections to see firsthand the conditions of the age-old facility.
