Bordallo withdraws HR4402

Guam - Apparently its not just because of concerns from local leaders and Ritidian original landowners that Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo decided not to include HR4402 as an amendment in the proposed FY15 National Defense Authorization Act. But today she says it's also because House Republicans could not agree to include compromise language that would require the Department of the Interior to study the feasibility of relocating or reestablishing the National Wildlife Refuge at Ritidian to an alternate location.

Bordallo added the bill could not move forward without the language as it was also meant to address concerns raised by original landowners. As we reported, over the last several days, original landowners of Ritidian properties have been outraged about Bordallo's introduction of HR4402 without their knowledge or input.  HR4402 would establish a surface danger zone over Ritidian in anticipation of the military's proposed live fire training range at northwest field. Governor Eddie Calvo meanwhile says he understands Bordallo's intent with her introduction of HR4402 and supports the measure as amended because it will help move forward this already delayed process.
