Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo is applauding the bipartisan support of both the democrats and the republicans in the Guam Legislature for moving forward on balanced economic policy. Governor Calvo says the republican proposal to cut taxes and increase the exemption threshold for the gross receipt taxes will help the smallest of small businesses to withstand the wage increase. He does however caution leaders that increasing the minimum wage cannot be the only initiative toward eliminating poverty on Guam. Senator Michael San Nicolas meanwhile tells KUAM that he is not withdrawing his measure that would combine both the ideas of Vice Speaker Cruz and the GOP. As we reported, Committee on Rules chair Senator Rory Respicio returned the bill back to San Nicolas because they did not meet the requirements of standing rules. San Nicolas says he still believes that combining both ideas into one single legislation will allow the issue to proceed more smoothly. He is still considering all his options which includes possibly getting the rules committee to overrule the chairman.
