Guam - The public hearing on a resolution that would help Guam students save thousands of dollars in off-island tuition fees has been postponed.
Resolution 234, introduced by Senator Brant McCreadie, would show Guam's support for membership in the Western Interstate Commission for High Education. The program represents 15 states, 150 schools, and 400 programs that allow non-resident students to pay resident fees.
According to McCreadie's office, the public hearing has been postponed at the request of the Guam Community College president Dr. Mary Okada and University of Guam's Dr. Robert Underwood, as both are off-island.
The new hearing date is Monday, October 14 at 5 p.m.
