Guam - He's a former senator with background in finance and today Tony Blaz went up for a confirmation hearing to serve as the director for the Bureau of Budget and Management Research. "With this duties and responsibilities entrusted to be director of BBMR, I have confidence in my qualification and experience to continue the positive efforts produced by the agency," Blaz said. "I have almost 30 years of supervisory experience earned through the public and private sectors."

Blaz recently served as the deputy director of the Department of Administration. He was also the former administrator for the Guam Economic Development and Commerce Authority and the chief officer for the Public Utilities Agency of Guam (the predecessor for GWA). He served five terms as a senator holding the position of vice speaker in the 24th Guam Legislature and as chairman of the Committee on Finance and Taxation. He currently is a member of the Government of Guam Retirement Fund board of directors. Blaz would replace John Rios who was appointed back in May as the acting administrator for GEDA.

    Two pieces of proposed legislation that aren't on the next session agenda are Bills 141 and 142.
