Guam - It was late last year when law enforcement's remaining balance of 20% was implemented across the board for personnel under the Executive Branch. The Judiciary of Guam's law enforcement personnel however were not included and today legislation aimed at adjusting them to the 40% level was heard today.

Dozens of members from the Judiciary filled the Public Hearing Room, including Chief Justice F. Philip Carbullido, who said, "In addition he has fully implemented the 40% and so I did not feel that we could continue the disparity in terms of the full 40% implementation - all we're asking before this committee is for parity, for equality to carry out the mandate of this legislature."

Bill 244  would appropriate $900,000 from the General Fund to the unified judiciary for salary increases for marshal and probation officers for the purposes of implementation the raises mandated by law.
