Guam - The Governor's Buildup Office director Mark Calvo says while its still very early to decipher the details on the budget, he says from what he's read, the president's budget is positive for the military buildup.

"He highlights the rebalancing in the Pacific with the Defense Department and how that's a key item in his budget and its important to be funded and then he talks about funding in excess of $140 million, $150 million in projects in Guam again we hope there are more details in military construction projects but clearly the president budget is a positive indication again that the buildup is not on hold because of budget restraints in the nation," he said.

He adds with this budget, there's a possibility of even more military construction projects on Guam.
