Senators resume session Monday

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The 32nd Guam Legislature returns to session Monday when they are expected to discuss the substituted version of the proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget.

The new version is different than the budget the governor submitted in February. One of the changes:  in the governor's proposal the provision for tax refunds was at $118 million. Substituted Bill 269 instead has it at over $121 million or a $3.2 million increase. Meanwhile when senators do return to session it's not clear whether Speaker Judi Won Pat will waive public hearing requirements for Bill 389 and Bill 390 and add them to session agenda.  Bill 389 would appropriate $10 million from Section 30 funds due to the GovGuam for the law enforcement payment. Bill 390 would also appropriate from those funds to fully fund hay pay raises. Session on Monday is scheduled for 9am.
