Guam - It was a few weeks ago when Governor Eddie Calvo submitted his budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2015. The budget plan proposed $863.8 million in total revenue projections - an increase of approximately 7.3% compared with the amount identified in FY2014.

Speaker Judi Won Pat says proposal is under review by the Legislature's Budget Committee. "Of course every time you have a higher budget it sounds good but we need to verify those numbers especially because there's some new things that is included there that we're not sure because if we can't even take care of some of our existing agencies then to start already implementing new programs and more money elsewhere to something we haven't done before, we just really need to look at the numbers carefully," she said.

She adds on a lighter note that the governor's budget proposal makes a nice picture book.
