Guam - The Governor's Buildup Office continues to review comments and input submitted by the Government of Guam agencies over the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. Lawmakers scheduled a series of roundtable meetings with the agencies to discuss the possible impact. Buildup Office director Mark Calvo had requested for the hearings to be rescheduled in order to ensure the agency assessments on the impacts in the study are accurate. As of today, nearly half of the agency comments are published online.

"And the end result although the public and media is concerned about censorship and fine-tuning at the governor's level, the good news is there was better discussion and better communications of the comments that the agencies that were submitting so that they were actionable or can be actionable for the Navy," he said.

Calvo reiterates the review process is not to provide censorship rather due diligence. The other half of agency comments should be published online over the weekend. You can view the comments at OneGuam.com.
