Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo is calling the Legislature into special session this afternoon to discuss Bill 250 related to pushing through the Guam Memorial Hospital's $25 million loan.  Last week Committee Chair on Health Senator Dennis Rodriguez Jr. wrote a letter to Speaker Judi Won Pat to call an emergency session on January 10th to discuss his bill. Instead KUAM confirmed with her office today that a public hearing will be held on the bill this Friday with Session to follow that afternoon at two o'clock.  Senator Rodriguez last week wrote that the bill was time sensitive because the hospital needs to finalize the loan agreement and make payment on at least two critical services and financial services resources. Rodriguez further informed Won Pat that the hospital was notified by one of its vendors NTT Data, Inc that there will be no further extensions granted and that all services to include all software licenses, will be terminated by February 1st if the hospital's debt is not paid by January 22nd. Governor Calvo has called lawmakers into special session for 4 o'clock this afternoon.
