Bordallo addresses concern over HR-4402

Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo is addressing concerns about HR-4402 that she recently introduced authorizing the Navy to establish a surface danger zone over the wildlife refuge at Ritidian. She clarifies the SDZ will only be over the current refuge land as the actual ranges will be located on Andersen property at Northwest Field. She adds the bill is strictly a placeholder in order to ensure that all issues especially the SDZ questions are fully considered. Bordallo says it will allow congress to receive the views of the Navy, the US Fish and Wildlife Service and our community. As the process moves forward inclusive of the comment period for the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, Bordallo says her goal is to include language in the NDAA requiring the Secretary of the Interior to explore alternative locations for the wildlife refuge. Meanwhile, it was just yesterday when Senator Ben Pangelinan wrote to Congressman John Fleming asking for more time for the people of Guam to comment on HR-4402 due to its potential adverse impact and the protection of land for original landowners on which the refuge sits.
