Guam - The Guam Legislature is close to finalizing its request for a declaratory judgment with the Supreme Court. As we reported, Resolution 358 was passed unanimously by lawmakers nearly a month ago that requests for the declaratory judgment over the Guam Legislature's ability through a duly passed law of Guam to direct the Guam Election Commission to place a measure on the ballot. The resolution's main author Senator Tina Muna Barnes tells KUAM she is working with the legislature's legal counsel in finalizing the petition and hopes to file it by today or at the latest sometime next week. The resolution came as a result of Guam Election Commission's decision to not place Barnes's medicinal marijuana measure on the ballot as they called action by the legislature as "inorganic".
