Guam - Guam continues to get no love from the Senate Armed Services Committee. The committee completed the markup of its version of the 2015 NDAA and unlike the House's version passed last week it cuts funding for the Marines relocation from Okinawa to Guam.

According to the Senate's version it cuts $80.6 million to the Office of Economic Adjustment for projects related to the transfer of Marines to Guam.

It also extends the prohibition on the use of Japanese funds for the realignment of Marine Corps' forces from Okinawa to Guam or other pacific locations until several conditions are met, including the completion of a master plan for military construction necessary to support such a move. The provision however does include specific exceptions for facilities that would have military value in dependent of the movement of Marines from Okinawa to Guam and planning and design of facilities across the island.
