Gov to chief justice: add'l funds must come from legislature

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The Calvo Administration notes that tough choices and fiscal discipline allowed them to pay out $10 million in retroactive pay and institute the full 40% pay adjustment this week that is owed to the island's public safety personnel in line agencies.  The Judiciary and Senator Frank Aguon, Jr. penned letters to the governor seeking his assistance in obtaining $900,000 for the implementation of the remaining 20% adjustment.

Governor Eddie Calvo explained that the deficit is gone which has allowed the Administration to finally implement the financial promises made to employees. The governor informed the chief justice that he is willing to assist to help probation officers and court marshals receive their deserved pay raises but notes that any additional money the Judiciary is seeking must come from an appropriation from the Guam Legislature.
