Guam - A bi-partisan piece of legislation has been introduced to answer the call of Simon Sanchez High School students and parents. Bill 218 was introduced late this afternoon to provide $4.8 million toward the construction of a new home of the Sharks.

The bill would pledge $4.8 million in revenues that will be generated in Fiscal Year 2019 when GovGuam's limited obligation: Business Privilege Tax Bond Series 2013c matures, essentially the legislation would reserve the funding to ensure that it goes toward the construction of a new Simon Sanchez High School. The bill was sponsored by Senator Brant McCreadie and co-sponsored by Senators Dennis Rodriguez, Jr., Tommy Morrison, Chris Duenas, Michael Limtiaco, Frank Aguon Jr., and Rory Respicio.
