Guam - While lawmakers have yet to approve a budget bill for Fiscal Year 2015, they did manage to pass legislation that would appropriate funds to the Guam Veterans Affairs Office. Bill 385 introduced by Senator Frank Aguon Jr., was waived of its public hearing requirements and discussion on session floor on Tuesday. The bill would appropriate $260,000 from the FY2014 General Fund to the Guam VA Office to fulfill local funding requirements for three separate veteran cemetery grants. The money will go toward expansion of 300 preplaced crypts, to improve public restrooms up to code along with the administration building, to prevent further erosion of the cemetery and to clean, align and replace tilting headstones. Governor Eddie Calvo recently signed the measure into public law. You can read Bill 385, now Public Law 32-180, on GuamLegislature.com.
