Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo sent a response to Speaker Judi Won Pat saying she appreciates her attention and is keenly aware of the concerns of the Ritidian landowners. She says the Navy and the US Fish and Wildlife Service indicate that the legal impediments are the underlying issue of compatible use for allowing a surface danger zone over refuge property. Bordallo says the two organizations indicate that the draft language would  allow for a broad agreement to be reached between the two parties to include for mitigations that DOD might not otherwise pay for in the future without this language. In regards to access to Ritidian, Bordallo says it's an issue the governor of Guam, the legislature and other stakeholders can and should raise with the Navy during the SEIS considerations. She further believes that we can seek appropriate mitigations that would allow access at guaranteed times of the year. She says the report language which HR-4402 mandates will be the first step in pursuing a long-term solution regarding Ritidian and the location of the refuge adding while its not a perfect solution nor what Ritidian landowners want, it begins an important discussion and process.
