McCreadie introduces bills

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - If you've ever been to the Department of Revenue and Taxation, chances are you've been caught in the long lines waiting for service. Three bills have been introduced today aiming to alleviate the congestion and cut down the wait time. The measures were introduced by Senator Brant McCreadie.

Here's a summary of the bills:

Ø  Bill 255-32 (COR) provides an option for business owners in good standing with DRT to renew their business license every three years rather than every year.  

Ø  Bill 254-32 (COR) extends a driver's license renewal period from maximum of five years to six years.

Ø   Bill 256-32 (COR) proposes an extension of automobile registration from one year to two years for new car owners, and both are intended to lessen the lines at the vehicle registration division.

"DRT has made considerable efforts over the past few years to increase efficiency to better serve its customers," said Senator McCreadie. "The bills I have introduced are intended to even further assist DRT in serving its customers by increasing convenience and decreasing lines and wait times."  All of the bills require the full amount of the registration and renewal fees are paid up front, which would provide additional revenue for government services.
